Harriet Fraser (FRGS) has been a writer since 1990 when she wrote the first edition of the Rough Guide to India. Exploring the world, near and far, has always been an attraction, especially if it means spending prolonged periods outside. In the last twenty years Harriet’s writing has been widely published, and she has exhibited prose and poetry across the UK in collaborations with visual artists. She lives in Cumbria where she weaves writing into a variety of creative and documentary projects, often in partnership with her husband, photographer Rob Fraser, with whom she carried out the highly acclaimed 'Land Keepers'.

"Friends of the Lake District has a simple and important ethos, to protect the local landscape, and carries this out with due consideration of the many different demands on this part of the world, including biodiversity, farming, tourism and local residents. I’m pleased to be able to do my bit to help spread enjoyment and awareness of this beautiful region and its many treasures."
