I've been fortunate to have lived in several countries, and to have worked as a journalist in many of them. I have also worked as a travel writer and deputy magazine editor in London and Europe, a magazine editor in Sydney, and a senior book editor for an international architecture and design publisher with offices in Melbourne, New York and London. Now an author, I've written more than 20 books, including a bestselling biography and two dozen books about architecture, gardens, travel, style, and design. These include:
