For many years I planned to write about my world travels. Just prior to the beginning of 2022 I accomplished my dream with the publication of my adventure travel memoir, Amazon Hitchhiker: A Woman's Adventures from Canada to Brazil.
Lured by unrealistic fantasies of the Amazon River I followed my dream hitchhiking south from Canada overland through Mexico and Central America to South America. What began as the adventure of a lifetime soon became a struggle for survival as I paddled a dugout canoe without a map or a guide deep into the unknown Amazon rainforest. “Amazon Hitchhiker" is the true tale of this journey.
To my amazement within a few days of being available for sale Amazon Hitchhiker became a new release best seller on Amazon. Positive Five Star reviews came flooding in from readers in Canada, United States, Ecuador, Europe, the UK, Australia, Tanzania and South Africa.
Throughout 2022, Amazon Hitchhiker continued to sell internationally appealing to young adventure travelers as well as older readers who wanted to relive the wild days of their youth from a comfortable reading chair.
As 2022 ends and 2023 begins I am filled with gratitude and the excitement a New Year brings.
Follow your dreams!
Make your dreams come true!
Happy New Year!
