Hello!

Come in. Pull up a chair. Take the weight off your feet. Welcome to my website, and to the beautiful Welsh Borders. If you don’t know where the Welsh Borders are, head north from London, turn left for Birmingham, and then keep heading west, but stop before you reach Wales. Easy!

I write articles, short stories, books and I take photos too. Well, when you see what the scenery is like round here, it’s difficult not to be inspired. Much of my feature and photography work is inspired by my surroundings: the landscape is important to my work. For examples of my work check out the Landscape / British Travel page, or click on the publication links on the right.

And if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch – head to About Me and then select Contact from the dropdown menu. I’ll try to respond as quickly as I can, but please remember … we writers have deadlines from time to time, and they tend to take priority, especially as they loom ever closer!

Many thanks,

Simon
