I’m an author, editor and photographer, and live in Stoke Newington, north London.

These days, I work mostly for Lonely Planet, for whom I’ve recently written a new Pocket Guide to Oxford & The Cotswolds; contributed to the North Carolina section of Georgia & The Carolinas; and updated the Corsica chapter of France. I’ve also updated the Ionian and Dodecanese islands for Lonely Planet Greek Islands, and New Mexico for Lonely Planet Southwest USA.

Earlier in my career, I was for several years a senior editor with Rough Guides. I wrote sixteen travel, history and music books for Rough Guides as sole author, including Hawaii, Brittany and Normandy and Southwest USA, and shared authorship on many more, among them Barcelona, Japan and Australia.

My Rough Guide to the Titanic is a definitive guide to history’s most famous maritime disaster. To read more about it, click here, or visit my Titanic blog, Blogtanic.

I’ve also written books for many other publishers, including Dorling Kindersley,

Fodor’s, Insight, Berlitz and Inside-Out guides; apps for Sutro Media; and content for websites such as Telegraph Travel and Cool Places.

As an editor, I co-edited Rough Guides’ Make The Most Of Your Time On Earth with my wife Samantha Cook. I also edited Elvis Has Left The Building by Dylan Jones; Inferno Decoded by Michael Haag, for which I also wrote three chapters; and Lloyd Bradley’s Sounds Like London, published by Serpent’s Tail. I also edited the original Rough Guides to India and the USA, and guides to Elvis, Soul and the Blues.

My photographs, as seen on the travel pages of this site, have been published in my own books, and also in magazines, newspapers and elsewhere.
