Hi there! I'm an adventure travel writer with several books; a vehicle, gear, and gadget reviewer, self-publishing expert, and I also teach travel writing. You can buy my books at all the usual book resellers. American Borders is the story of my R&D test ride of the Russian Ural sidecar motorcycle on behalf of the American importers. My next trips were in India, Italy, China, Around the Adriatic Sea, and from the Alps to the Atlas in Morocco. I also write articles and books on the self-publishing process. I've self-published since 1994!
American Borders Book Review: Starting with the “failure of marriage” culminating into a wild romp with a stranger in her tent...Carla takes the reader on an adventure of not just location but one of honesty at every moment. --Two Wheeled Wanderlust
