More About the Author
I'm an author, editor and photographer, and live in Stoke Newington, north London.
I've written sixteen travel, history and music books for Rough Guides as sole author, and shared authorship on several more. I also work for Lonely Planet; I updated the New Mexico chapter of the 2015 edition of Lonely Planet: Southwest USA, and I'm currently working on the Dodecanese chapter of Lonely Planet: Greece.
This year I'm also working on new editions of the Rough Guides to Barcelona, Central America On A Budget, and Provence and the Côte d'Azur.
I've recently completed new editions of the Rough Guides to Brittany & Normandy, Spain, and Belize, as well as DK Top Ten: Las Vegas, and written a new second edition of my Pocket Rough Guide to Las Vegas, as well as several sections of DK's Music: The Definitive Visual History.
As an editor, my recent projects have included Rough Guides' Make The Most Of Your Time On Earth, Lloyd Bradley's Sounds Like London, Dylan Jones' Elvis Has Left The Building, and Michael Haag's Inferno Decoded.
My Rough Guide to the Titanic, published in 2012, is a definitive guide to the most famous maritime disaster in history. You can read about it on my blog, blogtanic.wordpress.com, and website, gregward.info.
My photographs have been published in my own titles, and also in magazines, newspapers and other books.
