Keith Foskett was born and raised in southeast England, amongst quintessential rolling English countryside. It was here that he nurtured a passion for hiking and the outdoors, and this forms the basis of much of his writing work.
Having discovered, and hiked 1000 miles of the ancient pilgrim's route known as El Camino de Santiago in Spain, the appetite for hiking was fuelled further. All 2640 miles of America's Pacific Crest Trail followed, and 2200 miles weaving along the Appalachian Trail. He still hikes and holds a deep respect for the outdoor spaces of this world, always looking for another adventure.
He contributes to various outdoor publications. In 2012 and 2015 he was shortlisted for Outdoor Personality of the Year by The Great Outdoors Magazine. His second book - The Last Englishman, was also nominated for Outdoor Book of the Year. His third offering - Balancing on Blue was also shortlisted for Outdoor Book of the Year.
His outdoor blog (keithfoskett.com) is hugely popular and was voted outdoor blog of the year by the Go Outdoors chain.
Partial to a decent bottle of Rioja, down sleeping bags and woollen underwear, he was born, and still lives in West Sussex, England.
