Roxanne Reid

Roxanne Reid was editor of a food industry journal for a decade and won more than a dozen Pica Awards for journalism and editing. Then her real life began and for the past 16 years she has worked as a freelance book editor, health and travel writer. She and her husband Keith have driven enough road trip kilometres in Africa to take them around the world about 15 times. She loves everything about Africa – its small towns and villages, its people, its culture and heritage, its wildlife and conservation. She’s happiest in the middle of nowhere, meeting the locals, trying something new, or simply watching the grass grow. Read her weekly African travel blog.
