Well, the important thing is that I am writing a book called “Interviews with Beekeepers” and, guess what? It is based on interviews with legendary beekeepers around the world, with a slight UK bias as that’s where I live. It means I get to travel and meet amazing people and find out as much as I can about my favourite insect, Apis mellifera (the honeybee).
I aim to write a book which will be packed with useful information and amusing stories. I am no bee expert – I keep bees on a small scale, but my mission is to talk to the real experts – those who keep bees for a living – and let their knowledge and experience be my guiding light. I hope that the book will appeal to all beekeepers, including those who have been at it for years, and perhaps even the odd “civilian” (somebody who doesn’t regularly stick their hands into the nest of thousands of flying stinging insects).
I expect the book to be in print towards the end of 2018/first half of 2019.
UPDATE: I have been less able to travel recently due to the ill health of my father, which is slowing down the book (I have 2 more interviews to do in California)
