Welcome. I’m Joseph Lyttleton, this is my website. I am a freelance writer and editor who dabbles in photography and tends to go on political rants. I write novels and can write articles on a range of topics if you’re in need of that sort of thing.


In 2005, I began a life-changing journey: 10 Cities/10 Years. I challenged myself to live in a new city every year in order to gain a varied experience, see more of the United States, and maybe pick up some good stories along the way. Partly a travel blog, partly a social experiment, 10 Cities changed my life.

On September 1st, 2015, I reached the conclusion of the project, having lived in the US’s most renowned and idiosyncratic cities. In each new home, I experienced America’s diversity as well as its defining homogeneity. The United States is a nation built on differing perspectives and driving passions that still, somehow, breeds a thriving whole, even in the midst of hardship.

From 2005 to 2015, I called these 10 cities home:

The 10 cities of 10 Cities/10 Years

In 2017, I relocated to Madrid, Spain, where I’m writing, taking photos, and gaining an even broader perspective. To keep you up to date with my ongoing journey, I regularly use Twitter and Instagram. I continue to use 10 Cities/10 Years as an ostensible travel blog, but don’t be surprised to find my thoughts on politics, religion, art, and culture mixed in there too.

If you are a publisher or publication looking for a writer/editor with a wide range of experience, feel free to contact me at 10cities10years[@]gmail.com.

Yahweh's Children (New Cover) - Joseph Lyttleton
A novel about who we are, who we’ve been, and who we will become, Yahweh’s Children is a sharply satirical but entirely plausible alternate history of what’s yet to come.

  2. My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different website and thought I might
    as well check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you.

    Look forward to looking at your web page again.

    • Haha, uh, I don’t know what to say. It wasn’t so much courageous as it was having nothing else to do. Of course, to follow through with something this involved and complicated, it helps to not have anything to fall back on. There was literally nothing ‘normal’ that I could have done as an alternative that would have been better.

      Thanks for checking out the site.
