Meet the Author

Main author Jerry Dennis is an Englishman who has lived in Melbourne for the past decade and who is now the proud possessor of an Australian passport. It means he’ll drink the local beer but warm it up first. Dennis has worked on countless Insight Guides, primarily as a photographer, and his work has been appearing in travel publications and various other media for many years.

Fran Severn collects suitcases and carry-ons the way other women collect shoes. She has written about a school for butlers in London, worked on a cattle ranch in New Mexico, ridden camels in Morocco, and gotten lost in the back streets of Jerusalem. A private pilot, she has flown across the US and Canada. She’s written over 200 articles for publications as varied as Delta Sky and Western Horseman, is a contributing writer to the on-line travel publication Striped Pot, and blogs for Chesapeake Life Magazine. She currently lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with her husband, dog, and three horses.
