'Bo Heamyan' (D B Calpin)

‘Bo Heamyan' is the rather fanciful pen name of D B Calpin, a freelance travel & lifestyle writer with a casual tone and a penchant for offbeat experiences. 

After spending the best part of a decade working overseas and travelling the world, Bo decided to turn his hand to freelance writing. Since then, this NCTJ-accredited wordsmith has generated commercial content for industry-leaders like GoogleTrivago and Kayak; written features for print titles including Group Travel WorldPerfect Fit and Digital Nomad Travel Magazine, and contributed articles of all kinds to the likes of YahooTravelTop6, SAGA and the BBC.

In addition, he's also taken to musing about the ups-and-downs of parenting since his ever-lively daughter Ellie hijacked his life six years ago (a phenomenon recorded in his first book, Expecting the Unexpected). 

When not writing, this Hertfordshire-born hack likes nothing more than taking off on spontaneous trips, rocking out at music festivals and getting questions right on Only Connect. However, exploring the great outdoors with his increasingly adventurous little girl is undoubtedly Bo's greatest pleasure.
