One Step in Greece
Come with me as I journey to Greece to seek my wanderlust, lost since a bus accident in rural Sri Lanka ten years ago, and prove it is possible for an out-of-shape, middle-aged woman on a budget to experience a life-changing solo travel adventure.
Armed only with a guidebook and my mum’s 1978 journal, I discover the trick is taking just one step away from the mass tourism track.
This is more than a travelogue. It is a lighthearted mix of anecdote, memoir, family history and mild misadventure, combined with a fascination for heritage, culture and the volatile landscape (both geographical and emotional) I find in Greece.

“The notion that our stories may mean something to someone is the reason that writers write. We all hope that our characters and words will encroach on lives, appear unbidden long after the reader has closed our books. Sally’s memoir is a delightful demonstration of how unrelated stories can guide, influence and enrich a new story. To me this meeting of minds and imaginations is what storytelling is all about.”

Another Step in Turkey
My second book-length project is inspired by my great-great-grandmother’s nineteenth century sojourn in Istanbul. It chronicles my seven-week solo journey through Turkey and the emotional landscape of grief. Want to know more? Watch this space.
