About







I grew up in Glasgow where I co-founded a small publishing company specialising in self help computer books.  A fortunate turn of events enabled me to change direction, move to the Isle of Wight and pursue my passion for travel writing.   

My round the world, grown up gap year was serialised in a local paper and since then, my tales have been featured in Wanderlust Magazine and Australia & New Zealand Magazine and I have won The Telegraph travel writing competition twice.

I enjoy having fun with language, writing with wry observational humour and creating interesting story angles.

I am active member of the Wight Fair Writers Circle and contribute to several travel websites including Weekend Notes.   As a committee member of the local museum's Friends group, I write clear thoughtful and relevant press releases for events, which regularly achieve publication in the written media.

I can be contacted by email at fionatrowbridge@gmail.com
