About Nick Edwards

Rough Guides are written by expert authors who are passionate about both writing and travel. They have detailed knowledge of the areas they write about—having either traveled extensively or lived there—and their expertise shines through on every page. It's priceless information, delivered with wit and insight, providing the down-to-earth, honest read that is the hallmark of Rough Guides.

Nick Edwards started exploring Greece independently while studying the Classics and modern Greek at Oxford, and went on to spend a decade living in Athens, teaching and traveling widely in Greece, where he first visited Corfu in 1983. Edwards is a long-standing Rough Guide author and is the author of The Rough Guide to San Francisco and the Bay Area, the coauthor of The Rough Guides' Athens Directions (with John Fisher), and a contributor to the Rough Guides to Greece and India.

Stephen Keeling grew up in England and graduated from the University of Oxford in 1992 with a degree in history, then secured a job with The Baltic Observer in Riga, Latvia, as an assistant business editor. In 2007 he wrote the first Rough Guide to Puerto Rico and contributed to Make the Most of Your Time on Earth. Since then, Keeling has updated the Rough Guides to Canada, the Caribbean, Florida, Mexico, New England, New York, Spain, and the United States. He also writes for The Independent, Budget Travel, and other publications.
