I am a writer and publisher. I have almost completed a tourist guide to the Dark Skies of our area. On my website (in the process of setting up) will be a page on what to see specifically in the Dark Skies of our area and 11 similar pages so that tourists can plan to visit our area during the next 12 months.

The book will also feature the observatories, Sky Rangers and Planetarium in our area. My future plans are a book (also an eBook) on walks on the Annandale Way and similar walks guided by the What Three Words App.
