I am a freelance journalist and author living in Mallorca.To date I have had seven books published, six of which are set in rural Mallorca. I have twice fact checked DK's Top Ten Guide to Mallorca and am a hotel critic for Telegraph.co.uk . I write a weekly column for The Majorca Daily Bulletin and travel features for different UK and US publications. Aside from that I love travelling around the globe and have undertaken some weird and wonderful scientific and charitable expeditions, the most bizarre of which was carrying a grand piano up a tributary of the Amazon to present to a remote Amerindian tribe. I like to blend in with the locals and prefer to eat what they eat and travel in the way they do. I've backpacked around Sri Lanka using the marvellous train system and enjoyed various roughing it trips around Eastern Europe. I run a marathon for charity in a different country each year.
