Jo Parfitt has run Summertime Publishing since 1997. She has written over 30 books and helped well over a hundred new authors to write and publish their own. A journalist, editor, writer, speaker and teacher, she has lived abroad for almost 30 years – in France, Dubai, Oman, Norway, the Netherlands, Brunei and Malaysia. Jo specialises in inspiring others who write about expatriate issues.
A continent apart, Jo and Terry Anne made the commitment to email each other every Monday morning for six months. Part memoir, part diary, part self-help, the result is a vulnerable and insightful recollection - the then and now - of expatriate life between two friends.
