Kevin Albin

“A police firearms officer. An expedition leader on conservation. Author of award-winning climate novel, Stonechild, now writing the sequel.”


About Me

I was a police officer in the UK for 25 years, working on a tactical firearms team and as a hostage negotiator. I then took a complete career change and retrained as a mountain and expedition guide. I've led numerous trips on Kilimanjaro, Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu as well as conservation expeditions to places such as Borneo. In 2011, I won the Bronze in the Wanderlust Magazine World Guide Awards for my work.

I am the author of a YA novel, Stonechild, where the statues of London come to life with a serious message on conservation, which we don't listen to, and the battle for London begins. Having seen how beautiful the world is, we need to make changes and I took to writing, drawing on my life experiences, to write this climate story. Although it is proving popular with adults, I wrote it intending to influence the younger generation.

Stonechild recently won the Silver Award in its genre in the BookFest Awards 2024. It is also available as an audiobook by award-winning narrator Tim Campbell.

I have trained as a Climate Reality Leader under former Vice President, Al Gore and under the training scheme run by UNCC Learn. I give presentations on our climate crisis.

I live in France.
