I love to read , write and and to travel. The ideal combination is to become a travel writer, a fresh career I undertook at the age of 62, after decades of working as an international attorney. However, I also love to let my imagination run riot and to devise entertaining plots for romantic suspense novels, always set against an exotic or enticing background.
That's how my first novel, "Sweet Revenge" came into being. Combing literature and travel is an ambition which I can fulfill writing for literary traveler. Shorter pieces find a home on ITKT.
My recent trip to Galicia, the norther province of spain is reflected in a short travel guide.

I'm also the author of 73 articles, most of them about travel on www.suite101. I speak four languages and am a health freak and vegetarian, so you will find something about that in one of my 100 artcles on www.brighthub.com.
People who travel as much as I do, need to keep fit. I do so by swimming 30 lengths every day and walking at a good clip for one hour. Before I broke my shoulder, I practised kick boxing and have three belts.
From time to time, I also dabblke in poetry. I think I have invented a new genre which I call "poetry light". Read my latest poem "Temptation" and let's see if you guessed correctly!
I'm just very busy reading the interesting travel letters of Frances Calderon de la Barca, which will form part of an artcle which I am writing for literary traveler.
