I have been delighted by the response to my three travel memoirs since publication some years ago. The experiences of my husband, Brian, and myself – sailing through France in the 1980s, selling property, sailing in Spain, and promoting music and films in the Caribbean – were the inspiration for the three books. I am pleased that so many people have enjoyed reading about our adventures during those days.
During the 1960s/1970s, Brian worked as an engineer. His work took him to various countries around the world, including Africa. I accompanied him to Nigeria, West Africa where we lived for five years at the tail end of the colonial period, returning to England at intervals for three months’ home leave. Following Nigeria, we lived in Torquay, Devon, England prior to spending two years in America, where my first book entitled Between Two Worlds was published. Our travels then continued, this time to the Republic of South Africa, where Brian was employed as a Satellite Tracking Engineer (NASA) near Johannesburg for three years, before moving to the beautiful city of Cape Town to enjoy a further two years.
The success of my light-hearted trilogy of travel memoirs in later years has inspired me to write about the early days of our travel adventures throughout Africa. Entitled Remembering Africa, and soon to be published, I hope will give my readers as much pleasure.
