I’m delighted to join an illustrious group of fellow travel journalists for an evening presentation of readings on the theme: “Sex, Mishaps and Adventure: Titillating Tales Told by the Titans of Travel.”

My friend and fellow author Lisa Alpine (Wild Life: Travel Adventures of a Worldly Woman and Exotic Life: Travel Tales of an Adventurous Woman) hosts an ensemble of writers for this series of literary travel tales from around the globe. We’ll read and talk-story from some of our best published works. Plus, we’ll be signing and selling our books.

Join me September 24, at 7pm, at Mill Valley Public Library, California for “Sex, Mishaps and Adventure: Sexy Stories From Around the Globe!”

Not surprisingly, I’ll read from Mi Moto Fidel: Motorcycling Through Castro’s Cuba.
