Travel Posts

Like many writers, I find travel a constant source of inspiration.  I very rarely travel anywhere without getting ideas for stories, plots, characters and locations.  My time abroad usually ends up being much more hectic than staying at home.  To be honest, I wouldn’t want any other way. Being a writer is not a nine-to-five job, it’s a way of life.  Here are my most popular travel posts, and how they inspire me to write:
