I am the author of three travelogues. With a day job in education training and consultancy, I am an experienced facilitator and public speaker, having delivered talks about my writing and adventures to general audiences of handfuls, dozens and hundreds, and having facilitated workshops in schools and prison environments. A former chair of the Highland Literary Salon, I am attuned to the dynamic of the writing process and community, and have undertaken interviews, chaired panels and facilitated discussions in a variety of literary and other contexts.
My experience of travel writing is both as a traditionally published and self-published author, with subjects based on both world travel and adventures closer to home. I am especially interested in rail travel, the Highlands, the international language Esperanto, and the richness of exploration among the overlooked mundanity of everyday life. I can present about my travels and my books, entertain about my adventures, and explain my path to publishing. I also regularly publish blog posts on a variety of topics and take photographs of my travels.
