The latest offering of the popular novelist, Joanna Trollope, called Second Honeymoon is all about 'homing pigeons'. The book highlights how Gens X and Ys' financial success and capacity to maintain their own nests is so dependent on the vagaries of the work place. Even though, ultimately, I found it somewhat superficial, the novel does draw attention to common stresses and strains that can occur when kids return home to live.
The latest edition of YL (Your Life) magazine features an article called 'Happy Landings', based on an interview I did before I left for overseas. And I'm delighted that the same magazine has accepted my first ever travel piece, 'Wild about Wofgang', for publication in the next issue .
