A career in overland travel writing was launched when I drove a banger from the UK to Vladivostok at the dawn of a new millennium. Since becoming an established writer with the publication of Driving the Trans-Siberian I have co-written Carnival Express, Living the Linger and Black Sea Circuit.
In addition to my writing projects, I have also documented off the beaten track destinations including China’s deep south, tribal India, Crimea, Colombian’s Chocó region and the Balkan peninsula, Santiago, Chile, Buenos Aires and the Paraíba region of Brazil. Up coming assignments include Fes and Chefchaouen in Morocco.
My new book Up the Etna, co-written with my brother, is currently in the pipeline and it will be published in October 2019. Celebrating 20 years of travel and adventure, we have hand-picked a collection of our most intriguing and challenging journeys from around the world. Our unique brand of humor, hilariously truthful observations and in-depth writing style will take the reader to Russia, Syria, Mexico, Georgia, Germany, Norway, Sicily, Los Angeles, India, Spain and the jungles of Peru.
I have been noted by Lonely Planet for my talent to portray an “accurate view of what to expect”.
Also, I have co-written two screenplays Reach and the black comedy Eddy Bunk.
