Camels, Travel Writing Workshop & Memoir Debut

A camel ride in a sandstorm is just the thing to do when you visit Morocco.

Morocco edges the Atlantic Ocean and rims the northwest corner of Africa. It’s a captivating land of minarets, intricate tile design, oranges and olives, lush mountain passes and arid deserts, goats in trees, and—camels.

The day I was scheduled to travel from southern Spain to Morocco, the weather was so bad the boat wouldn’t go, and therefore I didn’t get to go.

So I was interested to read about Cam’s experience in Morocco with nomads and camels.

February 17 to March 2, 2015 I’m going to be leading an adventure “DISCOVER SOUTH AMERICA.” Along the way I’ll be sharing everything I’ve learned about travel writing & photography.

I’m excited about this fantastic South American adventure, and being able to teach you everything you need to know to write and sell stories and photographs of your travels to magazines.

Even if it’s not your heart’s desire to be a travel writer or photographer, take a look at the exciting events scheduled as we travel across the Andes and the heart of Patagonia from Santiago, Chile to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Just the names sound exciting, don’t they?


“Coming to Las Vegas, a True Tale of Sex, Drugs & Sin City in the ‘70s”

I’ve only been working on this memoir for 30 years!

On September 30, it will debut as an e-book on Amazon. And I’m thrilled that long-time Las Vegan, award-winning journalist and best-selling author Jack Sheehan has written the introduction.

This is the story about how I went to Las Vegas in 1973 to join a circus and ended up opening the original MGM Grand Hotel as a cocktail waitress.

I hope you’ll take a peek and enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed reliving those crazy days and writing about them.

Here’s to an “adventuress” day,
