Articles and Interviews - a round up of recent publications

I've been appearing in the media quite a bit recently. For an update of articles, reviews and interviews - by me or about me - read on.

Interview with Me and Reviews of My Books
Shaun Barnett interviewed Ned Barraud and I for the December issue of Backcountry -  the FMC magazine - we talk about our illustration and writing work and what influenced us. Shaun also reviewed two of the books in the  'Explore and Discover' series. We were in great company, this issue also includes photography competition winners, a photo-essay on caves and an item pack-rafting.

Articles - Read about me Taking Action for Nature
I was invited by Forest & Bird to contribute an item for their Summer 2017 edition - out last week. In 'Whitaker's Warriors' I wrote about a local conservation project I'm involved with. You can read an earlier item about this project on my blog here.

 And for a few of my favourite walks, you can read a couple of Wild Trip articles in recent Wilderness magazines. In the December issue, I described the Te Au track in Waikanae; and in October I wrote about the Barra track.

Although I'm pretty busy with writing for children, it's a welcome change to write for adults!
