About BurroBooks

Burro Books is the new publishing venture from Anna Nicholas, who has a love of both donkeys (burros) and Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, in Spain. In fact, she loved Mallorca’s rich culture, traditions, history and gastronomy so much that she and her family decided to make it their home 17 years ago.

If you too love Spain and the Balearic Islands, we hope you’ll be inspired to join us at the outset of our exciting publishing journey!

About Anna Nicholas

Anna has lived with her family in Mallorca for more than 17 years. She is of Celtic origin and is an author, journalist and inveterate traveller.

A Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) she has participated in tough humanitarian aid expeditions across the globe with her chum, British explorer Colonel John Blashford-Snell, OBE. Perhaps their most famous adventure  to date involved transporting a grand piano up the crocodile-infested Amazon river and through snake-filled jungle to the remote Amerindian Wai Wai tribe in South America, with the expedition subsequently becoming the subject of a BBC2 TV documentary. She has also been a worldwide adjudicator for the Guinness Book of Records.

Anna is the first Briton to have been awarded the prestigious Siurell de Plata award in the Baleares for her celebration and promotion of the local culture of the islands. She is now the most prolific British author writing about Mallorca, and the go-to person for the British media for questions about the island.

A member of the Telegraph travel team, she reviews hotels in Mallorca, and writes a weekly column for expat newspaper, Majorca Daily Bulletin, as well as contributing travel features to FT How to Spend it and other leading publications.

Every year, Anna runs a different international marathon on behalf of her favourite charities. Her author website is at www.anna-nicholas.com and she can be found on Facebook, and also on Twitter and Instagram as @MajorcanPearls
