8. Can you  please share that what you’re up to at the moment? Worth sharing, worth forgetting etc.

I have recently published ’The Necklace of Goddess Athena’, an urban fantasy involving time travelers and Greek myths and I’m currently heavily involved in self-promotion.

LETS TALK TRAVEL

9. First travel experience?

As my favorite place on earth is Corfu, my fondest childhood memories involve my summers there with my grandparents and cousins. It involved long hours of play and sunbathing as well as my grandma’s excellent cooking. I have been blessed with the best summers a child could ever have!

10. Any future voyage?

Despite my best intentions and fondest wishes, there are no travels to be had for the foreseeable future.

11. I am giving you tickets to go anywhere tomorrow, so where would it be and why?

Venice, Italy. It is one of the destinations I often dream about. I love Italy and would love to go back and use my Italian again.

12. So which is the place where you would decline my tickets for and why?

Anywhere where I would be likely to encounter snakes or large spiders. I guess that implies the Australian outback!

13. What 5 items would you not go traveling without?

A guide book, suntan lotion, sunglasses, a pair of comfortable shoes and my cell phone.

14. Best bit of advice you’ve received?

Don’t forget to pack your mosquito repellent machine!

15. Worst advice?

I can’t say I have ever received any bad advice and at that, one that got me in some kind of trouble.

16. Best bit of advice you can give readers of this interview?

If you are going to do island hopping once in your life, choose the Greek Cyclades and in particular don’t miss out Santorini (Thera), Sifnos and Milos which are my personal favourites. You won’t have seen sea so blue and the sunlight over the Aegean landscape cannot be described, must only be experienced.
