Bev's Adventures

Official Website of Travel Blogger, Writer and Environmentalist

A Global Nomad

ABOUT

Valerie work photo_edited_edited.jpg

Bev is a global nomad who grew up in a foreign country (not her parents' country) and has wandered the globe as she found time and money. She has lived in eight  countries, travelling to over 62. Some of her travels are in her blog (here), but her curiosity and imagination are in her books.

Travels are writing prompts for her stories. Bev’s adventures give her ideas for characters and storylines. The settings and cultures inspire her stories and come to life in her writing. With her mind, an experience turns into a mystery set in an exotic location.

BOOK (COMING SOON)

I am currently working on my debut novel.  

I am writing mystery but have a thriller in the works as well. All my stories will be drawn from my background, my travels and my observations. I often sit and write short descriptions of people I see around me - lovebirds at the next cafe table, horrible neighbors that cornered me in the basement to get their way with something, huge family groups on holiday and how they interact. People are true inspiration for characters - flaws, energy, real dialogue etc. 

I can't say more until I actually get my stories out there. 

Come back here for updates and more information
