My Bio An avid traveller, I love to share my experiences, especially the cost savings but also where to go to the out of the way places. I have now written four books on Blurb and it is a great experience. I am thrilled with each and everyone of them and hope that people who choose to look at the previews also enjoy what they see. I have written and received small awards to do with family research which is also my passion. I have had a couple of articles accepted, both on Tropea Italy - which features in my Italian Adventure - one by St Christophers' Inn group for which I was awarded writer of the month and the other in an online travel publication. I have also done a Professional Writer's course specialising in Children's writing and also one on Travel Journalism.
So you can see aside from the passion of traveling I also love to write.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I have now done my 4th book with Blurb - this time called a Taste of China covering our recent trip to Hong Kong, China and Singapore. It was a wonderful trip with the entire family including our (then aged) 14 month old grand daughter - she was an absolute hit wherever we went. It was our first trip to China and has just whetted the appetite to want to return and see much much more. Hong Kong is still a favourite and having been to Singapore about 10 times, I think that says it all.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I would say there's not too much you need to know about me...just a keen traveller, but need to work to get the money to see the world. I loved doing my first book "Our Italian Adventure" then just now have done a photographic book on Castles etc of England and Europe so will wait to see how that goes then do something on France and hopefully this will inspire more people to travel also
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
I would hope my first book is addictive in the sense that it would make people want to get out and see the world. Besides travel I also love old stuff - it's something we don't have in Australia - well I guess that's sort of wrong 'cos we are a very old nation, however is the historical elements of the world that intrigue me....."how did they do that" so many years ago...that sort of thing and to think these structures are still standing!!!!
