Publications

As content creators, I’m a travel writer and published author, while Jason is an adventure travel, landscape, commercial and wildlife photographer and filmmaker.

My literary pursuits extend across the vast expanse of the outdoors, encompassing the realms of 4WD overlanding and motorcycle travel. Within this expansive domain, my prose takes various forms—be it an enthralling adventure narrative, an insightful advisory piece, a compelling opinion article, a field-tested product review, curated Top Tens, or the evocative captions that complement Jason’s imagery for our social media presence.

As a dedicated advocate for women riders, my involvement extends to product development, where I collaborate closely with manufacturers of motorcycle apparel. Delving into the realm of motorcycle journalism, in tandem with the aforementioned pursuits, provides the creative outlet I both desire and require. The symbiotic relationship between riding and writing remains a nuanced and perpetual question for me—I’m uncertain if I ride to write or write to ride; perhaps, it’s an intricately woven tapestry of both passions.

    Sam Manicom’s The Moment Collectors – A Collection of Travel Stories

    “…I looked up and gave the sinister sky a slit-eyed appraisal. Having fallen out of favour with Lady Luck, a backdrop of boiling, distended clouds loomed overhead as the weather cooled down. It turned a world of pleasurable dirt road into a rain-dark, raw and grey space. Ominous and tortured, the heavens opened, and rain lashed down on us in a crazy assault all the way to the springs. Like riding on snot over marbles, we trudged our way through the pale grey calcium chloride with some artful slides thrown in for good measure…”
