Superb images and quality travel writing

Looking for someone to revise/write a travel guidebook or produce a smart phone app? Paul has written and revised guidebooks for several major publishers and is always happy to consider new projects. Recent pieces include: 'Jersey' for Select Travel Media; 'Rome: The Eternal Destination' for Serendib, the in-flight magazine of SriLankan Airlines; a revision of the London City Guide to Angers and updates of the 2014 Michelin Green Guides for Normandy and Brittany.  

His top-selling smart phone app Dordogne Explorations is available on the iTunes Store  and also the Android Market.  His second app, 'Provençal Roaming', (see review here) is also available on the iTunes Store and the Android Market. Paul's new app Nice & Beyond featuring the city itself and also the fabulous Arrière Pays Niçois, the mountainous area to the north,  is available on iTunes  and Google Play.

Paul is currently writing material featuring 'Languedoc-Roussillon' for a major new travel planning website to be launched early 2015. This will feature the beautiful crescent of territory from the Rhône in the east to to the Spanish border in the west and is due for completion during 2015. Any suggestions for interesting items to include will be gratefully received! Gîte owners and B&B proprietors in the region are welcome to submit their establishments for possible inclusion.
