Meet the Author

Kev Reynolds is a writer, photojournalist and lecturer. His first title for Cicerone appeared in 1978; he has since produced 27 titles for Cicerone, with others being researched at present. A member of the Outdoor Writers' Guild, the Alpine Club and the Austrian Alpine Club, his passion for mountains and countryside remains undiminished, and he travels throughout Britain to share that enthusiasm through his lectures.
A lifelong passion for the countryside in general, and mountains in particular, drives Kev's desire to share his sense of wonder and delight in the natural world through his writing, guiding, photography and lecturing. Spending several months every year among various high mountain regions researching guidebooks, makes him The Man with the World's Best Job; a title he aims to keep by remaining active for another 100 years at least.

Kev has enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Cicerone since the 1970s, producing 50 books, including guides to five major trekking regions of Nepal, and to numerous routes in the European Alps and Pyrenees, as well as walking guides for Kent, Sussex and the Cotswolds and he has several more books in the pipeline. His latest book, A Walk in the Clouds, is a collection of autobiographical short stories recording 50 years of mountain travel and adventures. He is also the contributing editor of the collaborative guide Trekking in the Himalaya.

A frequent contributor to outdoor magazines, Kev also writes and illustrates brochures for national tourist authorities and travel companies. When not away in the mountains, Kev lives with his wife in a small cottage among what he calls 'the Kentish Alps', with unrestricted walking country on the doorstep. But he also travels throughout Britain during the winter months to share his love of the places he writes about through a series of lectures.

    Shadow

    Lying hidden in the grass is a strange twoleg object. A mouse scurries past it, and the hunter that was chasing it stumbles over it. "What in the world is this thing?" She wonders. The mouse now forgotton, she picks it up and starts dragging it towards camp.

    Elder's den

    Next to the huge evergreen there is a thicket of grass, its tops end at about 5 tail lengths high. Push through the grass and there, right in the middle is trampled grass, grass that has been pushed down by generations of Echoclan's warriors, to let the most wisest of the clan live their last moons in comfort. This is were Echoclans' Elders sleep, soft moss is covering the grass making underpaw as soft as a cloud. Echoclans apprentices will come to change the moss every sunrise. The kits will happily listen to the stories of clan life, or the legends, or maybe even about starclan...
