First time here?

Welcome! This blog began as a place for me to chronicle my experience writing my first book, a travel memoir about backpacking solo through Africa.

But I missed blogging about travel. So I decided to morph my two interests, blogging about writing and travel, as well as travel writing. I also share thoughts on journalism and social media.

What can you expect to find here? Practical tips about writing and publishing, inspiration to keep you moving toward your goal and a community of writers who want to share ideas. I also offer travel stories and advice. My specialties are Africa and women traveling alone.

The word “travel” usually evokes images of visiting foreign countries. But like each of you, I’m also traveling through life, looking forward to the unknowns that lie ahead. In addition to working to publish this book, soon I’ll be moving to a new city, working a new job and starting my second book. Who knows where life will take me next?

    I wish I could also travel and see some new places around. Well, keep on writing and hope you do get your book published.


  2. Greetings from Ontario,Canada
    I came upon your website through Joanna, she inspires me, and have to say I am so impressed that you travelled all by yourself. Finding courage to follow your dreams and now writing about it.
    I wish you luck with everything and will follow you forever.

  5. I love traveling alone as a single girl, and it’s getting rather addictive. Always glad to know someone with the same interests =)
