About the Author

During Story Tours to Britain, my days were filled with book-related adventures -- many of them planned. We met authors of children's and adult books and explored places with literary and historical significance.
Authors told us hows, and whys behind their books: How a woman could write convincingly in a male voice. Why picture books are not as simple to create as they look. How some authors seek a place to give them the kernel of a story.
When we explored Belton House, the kernel for one author's book, we were introduced to a ghost. (chapter 1)
After visiting the Bronte home in Haworth, we walked the moors behind the parsonage and visited several private homes associated with the Bronte books and lives. (chapters 1, 6)
When we entered the museum of James Herriott's home/veterinarian office. we saw a tableau of pets and their owners. Someone immediately recognized which All Creatures Great and Small story they represented. (chapter 6)
One dewy dawn, Story Tourists were the only ones at Stonehenge. We wandered inside the fence and touched the ancient stones. (chapter 5)
Evidence shows that the Loch Ness Monster may have spotted me as I stood on the ramparts of Urquhart Castle. (chapter 2)
A Story Tourist in Britain with Glimpses of Harry Potter, Beatrix Potter, Jane Austen and Much More gives details of these and many other travel experiences. Take a peek inside the book now!
