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, shared authorship on several more, and also write for Lonely Planet, DK Eyewitness guides and other publishers. My specialist areas include the Southwest USA, Hawaii, France, Spain and the Greek islands.
This year I'm updating three chapters of the Rough Guide to Japan, and I've also explored Queensland for the Rough Guide to Australia, and returned to Hawaii and the Southwest for the Rough Guide to the USA.
Last year I worked on new editions of the Rough Guides to Barcelona, Provence, France and Southwest USA; the Lonely Planet guides to Greece and Western USA; and Dorling Kindersley guides to Las Vegas and Arizona.
I've also recently completed new editions of the Rough Guides to Brittany & Normandy, Spain, and Belize, as well as the Pocket Rough Guide to Las Vegas, and written 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.
