Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My two latest books, From Wages to Riches and Reclaim your Financial Wits are both short and practical guides about personal finance. From Wages to Riches is intended for young adults while Reclaim your Financial Wits is for adults who need to get back on track.

Both books are straight-forward handbooks to help give readers an overall understanding of the choices that matter most to their finances. It gives them a foundational understanding of what they need to know.

I decided to write these books after noticing many people do not have the time, inclination or a clear idea on where to turn to learn basic concepts that everyone should know about how to manage their money. Each book takes no more than thirty minutes to read. For those who want more depth, I have included recommended reading and online resources to build their knowledge further.
What are you working on next?
I am really excited about my second book which will be similarly structured around several countries and activities from my latest travels. Later this year, my husband and I are travelling through Iceland, the Baltics, Bhutan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Brunei. One of the challenges will be trekking for seventeen days straight through the Himalayan Mountains in Bhutan. We were in the Faroe Islands earlier this year and some of its wild and rough countryside will also feature in my next book.
