SHORT BIOGRAPHY OF THE AUTHOR

Mary Jane Walker hails from New Zealand. She has been traveling the rest of the world, and her native country, since early youth. She first experienced serious world travel as part of the crew on a small Chinese junk which was being sailed from China to France. Her memoirs are unconventional, historically well- informed and lavishly illustrated. Six titles have been published in 2017 and 2018, and three more are forthcoming.
