Of late, I’ve been working on the new ‘Japan’ guidebook and have been exploring Tropical North Queensland for updates of the ‘Australia’, ‘East Coast Australia’ and ‘Experience Australia’ guidebooks.



I  have covered the Greek Islands for multiple editions of ‘Europe on a Shoestring’, ‘Western Europe’, ‘Mediterranean Europe’, and ‘Discover Europe’.










I’ve worked on multiple editions each of ‘Japan’, ‘Hiking in Japan’ and ‘Best Day Walks Japan’ since the late 1990s.




Have covered Tonga and New Caledonia for multiple editions of LP’s ‘South Pacific’, ‘Rarotonga, Samoa & Tonga’ & ‘New Caledonia & Vanuatu’ guidebooks.
