My work

I've been involved in publishing since 1988, and spent twelve years as Group Editor for a national publishing company, producing four monthly B2B resource guides before turning to freelance work. Hence I've had experience in writing and reporting on a wide range of subjects, leading interviews (in English & French), research, subbing, copy preparation, presentation, commissioning - and deadlines.

In addition to writing features, news/product reviews, and monthly columns for a variety of newspapers, consumer and B2B magazines, including online content, I was Editor of Discover Touring and Discover Touring Live! for five years. In 2016 my knowledge of UK campsites was used to help judge the Great British Park Off Awards, hosted by Towergate Insurance.

Some of the titles for which I have written content include: The Times; The Telegraph; Discover Britain; France Today; French Entrée; France Magazine; Practical Motorhome; Practical Caravan; Camping & Caravanning; Discover Touring; Great British Food; Skylife; Kitchen Garden; Church Times Travel; and more....

Travel guides and books include Cool Caravanning (1st edition published by New Holland; 2nd edition IMM Lifestyle). This travel guide, researched and written entirely by me, also includes my own images. I'm the author of Bradt's Slow Travel: The Cotswolds (and publisher of an accompanying website - and The Camping Pocket Bible (Crimson Publishing) as well as co-author of Slow Travel: North York Moors & Yorkshire Wolds and Slow Travel: Yorkshire Dales (Bradt Travel Guides). I also wrote several contributions to 1001 Escapes to Experience Before You Die (published by Cassell in October 2009).

I welcome all opportunities to write. I'm available to work with magazine, book and online publishers, in addition to companies, for specific features or projects requiring copywriting/editorial skills. Please contact me via the 'Contact' page.
