Roving Press is a limited company, owned and run by Julie and Tim Musk. It was born of our love of Dorset and desire to publish books that are down-to-earth and helpful, with a travel and/or local interest slant, that are packed with value-for-money information for readers.
After studying agriculture and business studies at Shuttleworth Agricultural College, Julie has worked in publishing for over 25 years. Throughout her career, she has edited, proofread and project-managed hundreds of books and journals, working in-house at Farming Press and Blackwell Science, and then freelance for such well-known publishers as Elsevier, Springer, Wiley-Blackwell and Oxford University Press. As a writer she has contributed monthly articles to local newspapers on wildlife and countryside topics, and has produced video scripts and nature reserve guides.
Julie has travelled extensively, including three years living in Germany and two in the USA. She is the author of A Slice of Apple Pie: Your One-Stop Guide to Living in America, Lesser Known Swanage and Lesser Known Weymouth. Julie is the project instigator, creative writing arm and principal editor for Roving Press.
