The English Lake District, United Kingdom
Eddie Wren was born in Cumbria, in the heart of the Lake District (William Wordsworth country, in the north west of England). Strong interests in wildlife, mountaineering, and local history gave him a good insight into the area and this was dramatically enhanced by his many years service as a police officer in various parts of the county.
In terms of writing, this has resulted in him being commissioned to do two simultaneous series of articles, through 2003, for a prestigious regional magazine.
Wren is also a skilled photographer and his photographic commissions have included all of the 'stills' for the BBC Television 'Countryman' series, and work for the National Trust.
His knowledge of wildlife has resulted in him being asked to co-author a series of guidebooks on the nature reserves of the North East USA - an area in which he has spent considerable time.
In addition, Wren's extensive knowledge of police-standard 'advanced driving,' road safety, driver training, and accident investigation, have resulted in him writing articles for websites and various magazines on driver skills and survival on the roads.
He is a 'Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society' (LRPS), and his previously earned qualifications have included:
'Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society' (FRGS), and 'Associate of the Institute of Management' (AIMgt).
He is available for freelance writing and/or photography, via: firstname.lastname@example.org
