Where's Jaspa?




Thanks to Rich’s heart surgery at the beginning of January, 2018 has been a quieter year than originally planned, at least when it comes to travel. Our cruise from Abu Dhabi to Singapore had to be pushed back to 2019, and for the first two months of the year Rich wasn’t even able to do book signings!

Fortunately, that’s all behind us now. In April, we drove down to Charlotte, North Carolina, for a friend’s wedding. In May, we made what has become our annual pilgrimage to the Indy 500 in Indianapolis. And over the summer, we showed not one, but two sets of friends around Southern Ontario, including a couple of places I’ve never been before.

In between, Rich has got back on the promotional bandwagon, with schools readings and signing events at bookstores across Ontario.

As it’s turned out, 2018 will only deliver one ‘proper’ trip for us. And we’re on it right now!

It’s great to be back in North America’s Pacific Northwest. After a few days in and around Anchorage and Seward we’ll make on our way down Alaska’s Inside Passage, with an abundance of sea, mountains, glaciers, wildlife and frontier towns. And at the end of the cruise British Columbia awaits.

Along the way I’m taking in some new places, like Vancouver Island, as well as revisiting some of the locations that feature in Jaspa’s Journey 4: The Hermit of Kennecott.


Follow along exactly where Rich and I are via my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.



Our plans for 2018 might have had to be toned down in the wake of Rich’s heart surgery, but 2019 is shaping up to be a classic.

In March we’re finally off to Asia, on a cruise that will take us all the way from Abu Dhabi to Singapore, via Dubai, Oman, India, Sri Lanka and Thailand. And to a make it even more special, Rich will be celebrating his 50th birthday en route!

Next autumn we’ll be back onboard a ship (our first time doing two cruises in a single year), sailing from Venice (Hooray!) to the Greek Islands.

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.
