Writing on the Road:
Author: Sue Reid Sexton
Writing with humour, verve and honesty, Sue Reid Sexton travels solo in a tiny campervan. Sue uses her campervan to write books, and to admire - mostly - the west coast of Scotland and specifically Kintyre. Sue Reid Sexton has been a campervan user since childhood holidays with her family. She has owned several campervans and is adapt at coping with breakdowns and fixing them as a woman alone. Sue uses her campervan as a creative space and general escape hatch. For a day or weeks at a time, she disappears up glens and over mountains to write novels and non-fiction.
We could have called this book 'Meditating on the Road' also, as this book is a mixture of travel journal, solo travel, flights from home, as well as a guide to living in the moment, to coping when your marriage unravels and staying creative against all odds. 'Writing on the Road' also contains campervan don’ts and dos, and how not to be scared in the dark.
"Sue Reid Sexton speaks with a courage and humour that shine through this inspirational, honest and moving story." The Sunday Post
Sue's book has been reprinted many times and gives insight into Scotland, campervans, fixing toilets, not giving up hope, living solo, and also the human heart. Sue's book will appeal to camper van fans, writers and those interested in the writing process, and the great outdoors.
