BELINDA’S WRITING CREDENTIALS

I have also freelanced for movie magazine Empire, British Airways’ High Life, the UK’s biggest-selling weekend supplement Sunday as well as Vintage Life and Modern Dog.
Recent freelance work includes Enterprise’s online travel magazine, a puppy guide for Forthglade (One Paw At A Time) and a series showcasing Devon Dogs for Devon Life, which also featured my photography:
In 2000 I signed my first publishing deal with Random House UK and wrote a series of bestselling travel-themed novels and a US road trip memoir (ON THE ROAD TO MR RIGHT) which hit the Sunday Times Top 10 List alongside my writing hero Bill Bryson. My dog-themed road trip memoir BODIE ON THE ROAD (The Dogged Pursuit of Happiness) is out now in the UK (Summersdale), publishing in Germany (Benevento) on March 15th and the US (Skyhorse) on June 5th 2018. My books have been translated into Dutch, Russian, Czech and Thai and sold over half a million copies worldwide. (View Belinda’s books HERE.)
