Grief stricken following the death of my grandmother, I took my two young boys and their competing needs on an eight month adventure around the world.
When I returned I began to write a travel memoir revealing the challenges and wonderful events that occurred as I traveled with my sons to Canada, England, France, Spain, Italy and Vietnam.
Initially, I thought that I would be able to complete my book in a couple of months (what was I thinking?). In reality, I discovered that writing about my trip was going to take me on another journey - turning my travels into a New York Times Bestseller.
This blog records the trials and tribulations of achieving this, whilst raising two demanding boys (yes, I am a dreamer).
