I receive a large volume of email and my time is very limited. Much as I’d like to read and reply to every message, that isn’t always possible, so please read my FAQs before contacting me. Thanks!

I’d also like to request that you don’t send me a direct message on social media, as I’m unlikely to see it or reply. Email, for all its faults, is best.

Availability: I currently have limited availability from October 2019.

Will you edit my book?

If it’s non-fiction in the outdoor, adventure or travel genres, then we could be a good fit. I am also an experienced fiction editor, but I’m taking on fewer fiction clients at the moment and am selective about the work I choose to accept. Nevertheless, let’s talk it through – I love getting my teeth into a good novel!

At most times of the year I need 1-2 months of notice for a new project – sometimes less in quieter periods, but the more notice you can give me the better. I am particularly busy during the summer. Please get in touch as early as you can.

I’m a magazine publisher. Can you help with copy-editing or proofreading spreads before they go to print?

This is my bread and butter. Let’s talk.

Will you publish my article in TGO or Sidetracked?

I’m always looking for new online features for, but I play no role in commissioning TGO or Sidetracked print features.

Will you review my book/ other product?

Please read my review policy.

Do you publish sponsored content?

I rarely accept commissions for paid articles here. In the vast majority of cases the answer will be no, and I delete most emails suggesting paid collaborations without reading them. They rarely fit with my vision of what I want to publish – I’m keen to keep material on this site focused and of the best quality.

Will you be an ambassador for my (or my client’s) brand?

Due to the nature of my work, I have to remain strictly impartial when it comes to outdoor gear. I’m not interested in being a brand ambassador.
