I’m an author, editor and photographer, and I live by the sea in East Sussex.

I work mostly for Lonely Planet, for whom in recent years I’ve researched the Hawaiian island of Kaua‘i, updated several chapters of Lonely Planet Greece, written Oxford & The Cotswolds, travelled the length and breadth of Texas, and contributed to Georgia & The Carolinas. I’ve also updated the Corsica chapter of France. and the New Mexico section of Southwest USA.

Earlier in my career, I was 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.
