Adrian Sturrock is a novelist and travel writer, occasional musician, teacher, and ethnic minority (except when in Wales), specialising mostly in observation and unconsidered opinion. He currently lives in Buckinghamshire, UK, with wife, Natalie: his travel companion, best friend, and the person responsible for keeping him out of trouble on social media.
His first travelogue, THE SAT NAV DIARIES was well received on both sides of the Atlantic, gaining a string of 5-star reviews and culminating in a nomination for a 2018 Kindle Book Award. His follow up, THE SAT NAV DIARIES 2.0 (HEADING EAST…ISH) was equally well received and was itself nominated for a 2021 Kindle Book Award.
Adrian has published two successful collections of humour-based essays & articles through his RANDOM series, in which he considers a number of everyday pressing issues, from ‘how to get paid to fail a job interview’, to ‘why it is perfectly fine to blame French sociologists for one’s own first world problems’.
Beyond these publications, Adrian has contributed to a number of travel and lifestyle anthologies and online magazines, as well as having had his poetry/lyrics displayed alongside those of Benjamin Zephaniah in Luton Town Hall (though it is unlikely that Benjamin is aware of this).
Other claims to fame include being smiled at by Madonna, and having once spent an afternoon watching Ace Ventura, Pet Detective in Barry Gibb’s living room, where Bee Gee’s manager, David English, remarked on his shoes.
