Travels with Lola books are here to to bring families together. Writing them enables me to combine the things I am passionate about – writing, spending time with family, and travelling.
In 2018, Lola and I will release several books which are written and illustrated together. We use our every day experiences to create stories which we hope will inspire other families to do the same. The books will grow as Lola does and we hope that our readers will join us for the ride.
Let’s keep this simple, there are two things we’d love to achieve.
- To lead by example, showing the importance of communication, listening and being together.
- To inspire families to share valuable time together learning and growing, making the most of the world around us.
Travels with Lola mini memoirs
The first series are child sized adventures relating to our 3,000 mile road trip in France with the stories relating to chapters of Clancy Goes to France . I hope that parents and grandparents will read the travel memoir themselves as well as enjoy reading the children’s books with their little ones.
So far, we have published An Aqueduct Adventure which is a fun account of a day out in Pont du Gard. The book includes my photos and Lola’s illustrations – she also designed the cover! At her request, the children’s books are backpack size, perfect for little travellers. The book is also available digitally for those who prefer it.
The links below will take you to all versions if you’d like to purchase. Remember, all sales assist in our ongoing efforts to support MS research and awareness.
Clancy Goes to France
This memoir is the book I wrote to celebrate my father's life and his passion for driving in France.
Although a travel memoir, there is a strong underlying theme of appreciating the time we have with our loved ones.
