“Life in the Seven Kingdoms is never dull . . .” 

–Jen McConnel, School Library Journal



I’m chatting with the Meet the Expats podcast

Finding more magic in life . . . all around the world.

Have you ever been surprised by meeting people like you? I remember doing this all the time as a kid.

It was–and is–exciting when you go to a new school or join a club and someone likes what you like or knows what you know . . . and you feel connected.

Until recently, I’d never thought of myself as an “expat”, even though our family definitely lives in two cultures.

So when I discovered the Meet The Experts podcast, I felt like I’d found a club where I was already a member. Pauline asked me about how I connected to my local community when I thought I was just at the library to shelve books. We also talk about my books and I share my recommendations for places to go to experience the local culture for yourself.

Want to listen in? You’re welcome in this club too.

On Meet the Expats you will hear stories from expats all over the world as they share their motivations, challenges and unique experiences in the new place they have decided to call home, for a few years, months or a lifetime.

From making new friends, and dating, to kids and looking for a new job, these expats will share how they got through the challenges of moving their lives to a new country, their top secret addresses and favorite spots we all wish we had when we settled into a new city.
