You have seen my wife Sue in photographs on this site. Readers of my book have seen her artwork and benefitted from her expert editing. She is the inspiration behind our backpacking trips around Europe. Why does she trek? It is quite a story; check it out by clicking on her blog post above.

Life after stepping out of the working world has led me in unexpected directions.
As a recently retired political science professor and longtime newspaper journalist, I uncovered a passion for distance trekking when I walked Spain’s Camino de Santiago with my wife, Sue. I shared my Camino story in my first book, Camino Sunrise: Walking With My Shadows. Its success moved me to continue writing and trekking Europe’s most spectacular trails. This photo shows Sue and me at Land’s End after walking 200 miles of England’s South West Coast Path in 2019.
My second book is Trippin’ Through My Sixties: When adventure calls, the trails of Europe answer.
On this blog, I share my passion for reading by reviewing books I think many other readers will enjoy.
I am eager to hear your latest book recommendations.
My wife Sue gathered some of our favorite photographs from our Camino trek for this slide show to accompany Camino Sunrise. Click on the book title to view.
