Born in London, I've lived and worked as a freelance and agency writer in many parts of the UK before decamping to work in Washington DC for four years. Yearning to come back to Europe, my partner and I landed almost by accident in Andalucia, southern Spain, and are still here, exploring, writing, photographing and enjoying, after six years. We live in a small mountain spa town called Lanjarón, in the Alpujarras south of Granada. I write about it regularly on my blog, Andalucid. (http://andalucid.typepad.com/andalucid). Last year, I covered Andalucia for the new Lonely Planet Guide to Spain,adding lots to love and a little to loathe to my store of Andalucian knowledge. With my partner, a photographer, we've also documented adventures in Fez and Asilah, in Morocco. I'll be happy to share them with you!
