Special thanks to artist, editor and cover designer extraordinaire Elinor Mavor for interviewing me about my book  Kilimanjaro:
 Elinor’s blog, 
 Mavor Arts ,cover the arts and pop culture as well as various artists,
 famous and almost famous, sometimes herself, plus talented family and friends. I’m
honored that she included me as a writer/photographer. The photos posted were taken byme or my travel companions during our Kilimanjaro climb in December 2010-January2011.
I became acquainted with Mike Edwards on Twitter where I talk with many artists andwriters looking for people to possibly edit, work with on cover illustrations or simply towrite about on this b
log. Mike asked me if I considered writers to be “artists” and if so,
would I consider writing about his adventures climbing Kilimanjaro, which arechronicled in his amazing book, Kilimanjaro: ONE MAN'S QUEST TO GO OVER THEHILL, published in March of 2012.After I read the beginning pages of his book on Amazon, I was immediately intrigued. I
do think writers are “artists”, but don't usually include them on this blog except when
other visual artistry is involved, such as cartoons by said writer, reference my blog onwriter Ernest Hogan awhile back. In this case we have Mike's pictorial record of hisincredible trek to the top of what is not only the tallest mountain in Africa (5,895m) butalso the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. His photographs bring to life all thatis spectacular about Kilimanjaro.Then there is the personal storybehind the scenes which we willdiscover in this interview. And itturns out to be something
way more
 than simply an incredible travelogue.
 Elinor Mavor:
 Mike, are you aseasoned mountain climber? Truth!
M.G. Edwards:
 Not at all! I’m a
dreamer who dreamed big and didsom
ething I never thought I’d do — 
 climb a mountain. Thank goodness Kilimanjaro (Kili)
was forgiving enough that I didn’t
need to be a mountaineer to attempt it.
