Women's fiction writer: strong characters, pacey plots, love stories, mystery, travel - including the overland trail to India - and historical fiction (as Janet MacLeod Trotter). Jan runs an online reading group called bookgroupies. This site includes diary entries and photos from her experiences on the hippy trail in the 1970s. Enjoy the nostalgia!
Welcome from Jan
Hi there! This blog is for those who love both books and travel. I'm starting by travelling back in time to the 1970s and the overland trail to India which I took as an 18 year old. Have a look at my daily diary entries and photos. Some of these places are impossible to visit at the moment, but I can give you a flavour of what they were like in the golden age of the hippy trail.
Girls Night In Author Panel - Michelle Styles on far right
Fellow romance writer and member of the Romantic Novelists Association, Michelle Styles, is gearing up for a night of pampering and romantic fiction at Stockton Library later in November. Our Northumberland group of the RNA have done similar 'Girls Night In' evenings around the region, so this will be fun. Anyone within travelling distance of Stockton, Teesside, should put it in the diary:
