“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you.”
Anthony Bourdain

“Reading historical fiction from a very young age, fired my imagination. I loved the history, the development of the characters and almost always, the romance filling the many pages. I try to write with feeling and compassion, of a world as I would like it to be, with adventure, suspense and, of course, romance.

Susan Slater

Women's rights and society's health and wealth rise together.”
Melinda Gates, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World
