Rain, gales and ice blizzards.
Parched, tinder-dry fields.
There are alien invasions, military manoeuvres and toxic waste, and all before the Wood family even start their Alpine caravan adventure. Why?
Because it is fun. It is holidays.

Travelling in a Box is about a family and their passion for all things camping and caravanning. Join them as they embark on a pan-European adventure with their thirty-year-old caravan in tow, and see what happens when their unbreakable tolerance for ‘fun’ is pushed to new limits?

About the author

Mike is a writer and intrepid caravanner living on the Wirral, in the UK. He is a member of both the Caravan Club and the Camping and Caravanning Club, and the latter's magazine has featured several of his humorous short pieces over the years.

Amongst his favourite travel writers, Mike lists Bill Bryson, Terry Darlington, Chris Stewart and Emma Kennedy, although he confesses never to have ventured quite so far as his heroes, and will never eat anything that looks back at him, hence the self-coined label as a writer of sofa-travel.

Without the hat, and thus assuming the heavily disguised persona of Mike with a J, Mjke Wood is also an award-winning writer of science-fiction, fantasy and stuff that's just plain weird.

Cool, Gray City of Love brings together an exuberant combination of personal insight, deeply researched history, in-depth reporting, and lyrical prose to create an unparalleled portrait of San Francisco. Each of its 49 chapters explores a specific site or intersection in the city, from the mighty Golden Gate Bridge to the raunchy Tenderloin to the soaring sea cliffs at Land's End.

This unique approach captures the exhilarating experience of walking through San Francisco's sublime terrain, while at the same time tying that experience to a history as rollicking and unpredictable as the city herself. From her absurd beginnings as the most distant and moth-eaten outpost of the world's most extensive empire, to her instantaneous fame during the Gold Rush, from her apocalyptic destruction by earthquake and fire to her perennial embrace of rebels, dreamers, hedonists and misfits of all stripes, the City by the Bay has always followed a trajectory as wildly independent as the untrammeled natural forces that created her.

This ambitious, eclectic, and beautifully written book draws on everything from on-the-ground reporting to obscure academic papers to the author's 40-year life in San Francisco to create a rich and insightful portrait of a magical corner of the world. Complete with hand-drawn maps ofthe 49locations, this handsome package will sit comfortably on the short shelf of enduring books about places, alongside E. B. White's Here is New York, Jose Saramago's Journey to Portugal, or Alfred Kazin's A Walker in the City.
"In a world that views aging and senior citizens as obsolete, it is refreshing to read The Ripple Effect Cozy Mystery series by Jeanne Glidewell." ~Cindy Travis, Reviewer

Join Rip and Rapella Ripple and the Chartreuse Caboose on Their First Three Adventures Filled With Mystery and Mayhem

BOOK 1: A RIP ROARING GOOD TIME – Senior citizens and full-time RVers, Rip and Rapella Ripple, are headed to Rockdale, Missouri, in their old travel trailer (aka The Chartreuse Caboose) to attend a friend's surprise birthday party. But surprise quickly turns to shock when a party guest is found murdered and Lexie Starr, a friend of the Ripples, is hauled off to jail as suspect number one. Determined to exonerate Lexie, the Ripples put the Chartreuse Caboose in park and their investigating tactics in drive. But more than a simple frame-up is afoot when the victim's stepfather, who is also the local Police Chief, ignores the Ripple's findings.

BOOK 2: RIP TIDE - Rip and Rapella Ripple are spending the holidays with daughter Regina, in their hometown of Rockport, TX. When Regina's new husband, Milo Moore, becomes a suspect in an off-shore harpooning homicide, the Ripples set out to exonerate him. But proving Milo didn't harpoon his best friend and business partner, Cooper Claypool—with Claypool's spear-gun while out poaching red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico—is more challenging than the Ripples anticipated.

BOOK 3: RIPPED TO SHREDS - Visiting Wyoming's Rest 'n Peace RV Park, senior citizens and full-time RVers Rip and Rapella Ripple are intent on winning a wildlife photo contest. But while trying to snap the perfect nature photo, Rapella's game camera captures the truth behind the RV park owner's mysterious death. Now Rip and Rapella are knee-deep in their own investigation, and on the trail of poachers illegally trapping bears in the Bighorn National Forest.

From The Publisher: The Ripple Effect series will be enjoyed by fans of Joanne Fluke, Madison Johns, Ceecee James and readers of cozy mysteries who enjoy light-hearted, clean & wholesome, mysteries featuring female amateur sleuths and senior citizens.
