I work as an independent editor, writer and agent.My work blog is www.jenniferbarclaybooks.com
Here's how I came to be an editor and writer of travel memoir:
Falling in Honey: Life and Love on a Greek Island was published in 2013 in the UK as a book and audiobook, and later in the US & Canada, Bulgaria, Poland and Latvia.
My first book Meeting Mr Kim: Or How I Went to Korea and Learned to Love Kimchi is available in e-book in the UK and paperback in Australia.
'Loving it... Really great book' - Mikey
'Entertaining and enlightening... the whole ethos of seeing places and experiencing them for what they are, immersing yourself in the culture of the area is wonderful, and a lesson that I will happily take with me' - Neil
I also compiled A Literary Feast, The Walker's Friend and The Traveller's Friend, and was co-editor with Amy Logan of AWOL: Tales for Travel-Inspired Minds.
I'm English - I was born in Manchester and grew up in Saddleworth on the edge of the Pennines - but have lived in Canada and France, with longish stays in Guyana, South Korea and Australia. I have lived in Greece since April 2011, mostly on the island of Tilos in the south Aegean and for a while just a hop, skip and a jump away on Karpathos.
