Jini Reddy



I'm currently working on a new book for Bloomsbury Books.  It's all about exploring the magical in nature and the landscape -  a subject that is close to my heart. 

My first book Wild Times was published last October. For it, I travelled across Britain, exploring experiences that connect people with nature in more unconventional ways. The book is part-narrative and part-practical guide, so (hopefully) both inspiration and an invitation.

For news and press the book generated, see here  

It was shortlisted for the Travel Media Awards and won Best Guidebook Award at the British Guild of Travel Writers Awards 2017.

"Inspiring and practical - a rare combination. I can't wait to venture out and explore." - Melissa Harrison, novelist, nature writer and The Times Nature Notes columnist.

"So many rare experiences are made accessible in this fantastic book" - Tristan Gooley, The Natural Navigator and New York Times bestselling author

I've also contributed to the book Winter, a best-selling anthology published by Elliott and Thompson for the Wildlife Trusts last year and edited by nature writer and novelist Melissa Harrison.
