Christopher Stocks

A widely published journalist, editor and copywriter, Christopher has written for, among others, the Daily Telegraph, ES, Patek Philippe magazine and Wallpaper, reporting on everything from Uruguayan beach resorts to an underground submarine base off the coast of Sweden. He has recently finished a year-long stint as senior features editor at House & Garden magazine.

His interests range from the luxurious (he edited the Dorchester Collection magazine and 42/18, for the superyacht marina Porto Montenegro) to the down-to-earth; for two years he wrote a weekly gardening column for the Independent on Sunday. He is also fascinated by perfume (which he blogs about at The Sniff Box), trees (as a former editor of Tree News magazine), architecture and social history. 

Forgotten Fruits, his first book, was shortlisted for Food Book of the Year by the Guild of Food Writers, as well as for the 2008 André Simon Award, and was chosen by Monty Don as his favourite book of the year. Christopher divides his time between London and an old house in Dorset, overlooking Chesil Beach, whose garden has been featured in Gardens Illustrated.
