Words leave imprints in your mind like footprints in the sand...
Ghana, Africa
Niagara Falls, Canada
Hội An, Vietnam
Reykjavik, Iceland


As much fun travelling via fiction is, sometimes all you need is to sit back and take the time to enjoy a drink, a piece of cake and chat with the people on the journey with you. Authors act as travel guides of a sort and so we love to chat to them to talk about their setting, characters and inspiration.

So sit back, relax and enjoy with a cuppa and a cake of course!
