It’s a thrill to have my first two memoirs out in the world, even if the world isn’t paying a whole lot of attention yet! But people like nostalgia memoirs combined with travel memoirs, and a dash of romance in the first one can only help. Around the World at Nineteen: Explorations and Romances is the first one, set in 1961 and 1962. The next one is a year later. No romance but lots of adventure in African Summer: A Crossroader in Sierra Leone. Ah, the idealism of the 60s! But actually Crossroads still sends idealistic college students to Africa, I’m glad to say!
