Where's Jaspa?




Birthdays bracketed both ends of 2017 for me and Rich. In January we visited the UK to help celebrate the 18th birthday of Rich and Sue’s nephew, Charlie. But we also got to visit other friends and family in all corners of England. We even got to see Chester Zoo’s baby giraffe, Murchison.

In November we got together with a bunch of friends and family in Dublin, Ireland, to help Sue celebrate her 50th Birthday.

My biggest trip of the year was in April. Starting in Barcelona, with a side trip to Montserrat and Carcassonne, we hopped aboard a cruise ship bound for Venice.

Click here so see the whole itinerary. As I’ve said before, Venice is my favourite city of all time, so I was particularly excited about that!!

In May I attended my third Indy 500, made all the more exciting by the participation of Formula 1 driver, Fernando Alonso.

In June I got to northern Ontario, tied-in with Rich’s first ever book signing in Sudbury.

In July I spent America’s Birthday in Connecticut, followed by a couple of days in Cape Cod and Plymouth, Massachusetts.

In late August, I raced 2000 miles to South Carolina and back to see my first Total Solar Eclipse: a five day whirlwind of a trip focusing on just 2½ minutes of weird darkness in the middle of the afternoon. It was absolutely mind-blowing! I’d go twice as far to see another eclipse. A real Bucket List event.

In September, I introduced friends from the UK to Southern Ontario and Quebec. Along the way we visited Niagara Falls, Toronto, Algonquin Provincial Park, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City, plus a bunch of the local countryside. It was particularly exciting seeing Quebec City for the first time.

First things first: Rich’s heart surgery was a total success, which was a huge relief! In fact, he’s already back doing book signing events!

He’s loving being back in bookstores. meeting new people and introducing them to Jaspa’s Journey. It’s especially special when existing fans (like Isabella and Kaelyn – pictured above and on my homepage) stop by to say ‘Hi’, or pick up a copy of The Pride of London or Jaspa’s Waterloo.

And with Jaspa’s Journey 3: Jaspa’s Waterloo recently released, now is the perfect time to join Rich at an event near you. Check out my Meet The Author page for dates and locations, and come and get your signed copies of all three of the current Jaspa’s Journey books!

In the meantime, follow exactly where Rich and I are via my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.



My plans for next year are already to take shape. For example, I’m off to a friend’s wedding in South Carolina in April, attending the 2018 Indy 500 in May and heading back to Alaska in the autumn. And you can bet that’s just the beginning!

In between, I’ll be jetting all over Ontario with Rich, doing more book signings, of course! Check out my Meet The Author page for dates, locations, and more information.
