As a writer, and now author, I’ve always wanted to get involved with book fairs and connect with like-literary minded individuals. I am excited to announce that my book Finding Om will be present at the London Book Fair on April 12-14, 2016.
Although I cannot make it to the actual event, copies of my book and promotional materials will be available at Author HQ area, 1D50 with the staff from Book Marketing Solutions. If you are a book reviewer, blogger, freelance writer, columnist or travel memoir enthusiast and will be at the LBF, please touch base with me at firstname.lastname@example.org for an exchange or a giveaway. Several copies will also be for sale.
Today, as the world shifts and becomes more hectic and stressful, we are forced to find our “om” and look within for happiness. Finding Om dives deep into the journey of change, growth and expansion – all of which was found while being on the roads less travelled in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and India.
Throughout my life, the world has been my greatest teacher. Seeing how cultures live and how people survive is what made me break my patterns, discover what I want in life and how to appreciate my homeland – something I’ve always struggled with as an over-worked middle-class American. Like a therapist, traveling has given me the strength and power to overcome life’s obstacles and challenges. And there is no other way to realize this than to jump into a culture so different from the one where I was raised.

Food For Thought: Why London? I have a deep connection to London. Not only do I love the city, but historic writers like Charles Dickens inspired my writing. It sounds quirky, but after living in Europe, I realized that Dickens and I share a similar perspective on how we view the world and people. Part of this could be because we share the same birthdate, February 7th, so even as a kid I thought it would be “cool” to be a writer like Dickens and other notable February 7th writers like Laura Ingalls Wilder.
