Writer, editor, proofreader and African travel blogger
I am a freelance writer, photojournalist, blogger, editor and proofreader. As a travel writer, I have walked through the Kalahari with a San tracker, camped under the stars in the bare stillness of the Richtersveld, and driven along the Roof of Africa in the high mountains of Lesotho. I have breakfasted in the Okavango Delta with a herd of elephants, walked among the wild horses of the Namib Desert and felt the spray of the Victoria Falls on my face. You can follow my Africa Addict travel blog here.
- I have won more than ten Specialist Press Association Pica Awards for writing and editing.
- My book A Walk in the Park: travels in and around South Africa's national parks was published in 2009 and the updated 2nd edition published as an e-book in 2015.
- My e-book Travels in the Kalahari: Exploring the spirit of the thirstland was published in 2012.
- My fourth book, The Essential Guide to Self-Editing: power tips to improve your writing, website and blog, was published in 2017 as an e-book.
I am also a freelance editor and proofreader for a number of mainstream publishers, and a health writer, covering issues such as food and nutrition, stress therapy, healthy lifestyle, eye care, HIV/Aids, malaria, waterborne disease in Africa, lifestyle diseases, exercise and massage, spa therapies, wine, etc.
