I’m a writer, originally from the UK. Since graduating Lincoln University with a degree in Media Production (aka doing as little work as possible for a qualification) I’ve lived and worked in London, New York, Dubai, Sydney and Bali, but at the moment I call the road in South America home. I’m travelling for a new book!
People often ask me how I got into writing. The answer is, I wrote. A lot. I wrote about everything. And if I didn’t have anything to write about, I wrote about my lack of inspiration until something flowed. Blogging helped. I’ve been a blogger on one site or another since I was 21, living in New York. It’s only until quite recently (I’m now 32!) that I’ve been able to write on the move. But sticking with my passion definitely paid off. I’ve done a LOT of work.
Last year I lived in Ubud, Bali writing ‘Balilicious – The Bali Diaries’ (to be published in December 2012, HarperCollins Australia). This is the sequel to my first book ‘Burqalicious – The Dubai Diaries’ which excitingly has been published in Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, China, America and Canada. Eeeek! Right now I’m working on Latinalicious – The South American Diaries, which will hit shelves December 2013.
I really hope you’ll buy a copy of my books if you like my blogs. There will be e-books too, and I’ll be posting regular Burqalicious, Balilicious and Latinalicious extras on this website as time goes on. You can also follow me on twitter if you like – bex_wicks
