With a career that is now about to enter its fourth decade, Andrew Eames (@mounteagle) is one of the most experienced and prolific travel writers around today. Just look at the wrinkles.
He’s written five travel books of his own, two of which were ‘Book of the Week’ on BBC Radio Four, and edited many, many more. He runs a website about Germany, speaks at book festivals and travel writing seminars, and can be heard on the radio (but reckons he’s too shy for TV). UK Press Gazette recently ranked him 6th in the UK’s top 50 travel writers, and the Sunday Times rated his latest book, Blue River Black Sea, in the top six published in 2010.
Besides all that, he continues to contribute to a wide range of national newspapers and magazines.
So why isn’t he already a millionaire?
It’s a question I’ve been asking myself.
