January Magazine

I'm extremely grateful to the folks at January magazine for naming "The Great White Bear" as one of the best non-fiction books of 2011.

This one, on a blog called Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears, took a straightforward approach, and focused on the remarkable nature of polar bears - which is great, as that is what I had wanted more than anything to convey. Read More

Looking Ahead

Mark this as a day in history - out of the blue, I do believe I have suddenly decided what my next book should be about. There's a clue in this post somewhere, but in the meantime, I need to knuckle down and write something for my agent ... :)

New Review of "The Great White Bear"

I enjoyed a new review of my book that was just published in Open Letters Monthly. It's lengthy and thoughtful. I'll post extracts on the book's page on this site, but in the meantime, you can check out the full review here
