More About the Author

Caroline Preston has always had a love of literature, history, the arts, travel, bargain hunting and adventure and was delighted she was able to bring all her interests together whilst writing her travel books.

In addition to her travel guides she has also written a situation comedy, film script, comedy sketches, plays, newsletters, articles and her first work of fiction Salsa, which is a hilarious tale about a group of guys who join a dance class to find love. Check out her other works via her website at: http://carolineypreston.weebly.com/

Although it may look mysterious, the Y in her name does not stand for anything in particular and is there merely to distinguish her from several other authors also named Caroline Preston.

Caroline brings her British Northern "no nonsense, down to earth, can do, concise approach" to everything she does, including going on holiday! Which is partly the reason why her "Grand Tour" and "British Weekend Jaunt" books are so useful. She has been fortunate to travel extensively in Europe and lived in Brittany, France during the mid 1980's. Caroline currently lives in the North of England.

She very much hopes you will enjoy her eBooks and have as much fun on your "Grand Tours" and "British Weekend Jaunts" as she did on hers

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very quick and easy to read guide. There are plenty of photograph examples which makes it easy to identify the numerous and varied compacts. As a beginner to collecting compacts, I've found it invaluable. Can't wait for it to be in paperback!
