About the Author

Born in Hastings, New Zealand, Mary Jane Walker is a writer of lively and well-informed travel memoirs that come with an autobiographical flavour. Mary Jane first experienced serious world travel as part of the crew on a Chinese junk named La Dame de Canton, sailing from Guangzhou to Paris. Mary Jane joined at Phuket and left at Libreville, Gabon, and you can read about this in A Maverick Traveller. She has published six travel memoirs and three more are forthcoming.
