Adventure Motorcyclist.

Tiffany is probably the world's foremost female adventure motorcyclist with several round-the-world trips under her belt, nearly all of them on her faithful 1992 BMW R80GS, Thelma. Having sold her hair to buy tools, she embarked on her first journey to India with just two months riding experience, stretching to reach the ground from the unfeasibly high seat. She hasn't looked back since, except to maybe check if her pillion passenger has fallen off. She has been chased by wolves and policemen, the Nicaraguan Mafia and stampeding elephants. She was the first motorcyclist to cross Asia on all three classic routes: the north to Japan, central to Tibet and Beijing and the south to Singapore. When not exploring far-flung corners of the world on two wheels, Tiffany can be found at home in Lands End, England enjoying a cup of tea. She is currently in Madagascar exploring this incredible island nation by motorbike for three months. For information on her Ladakh Ladies Tour in India.

- British travel author, journalist, broadcaster and co-founder of the Adventure Travel Film Festival.

Everyone in the motorcycle world has heard of Lois - or should. She's the one wearing the huge sunglasses while banjo picking. In 2003 Lois left her job at the BBC in London to ride twenty-thousand miles from Alaska to the tip of South America astride her Yamaha XT225. Upon her return she wrote the book of this trip, Lois on the Loose. Itchy wheels struck again and in 2006 she set off on a Yamaha TTR250 to ride the length of Africa. Four months and ten-thousand miles later she rolled into Cape Town, just about in one piece. Her book of this awesome adventure is Red Tape & White Knuckles. Since then she has crossed the USA in a Ural sidecar outfit, scripted and presented a DVD guide to worldwide motorcycle travel and launched the Adventure Travel Film Festival with her husband, fellow motorcycle-adventurer, Austin Vince.

Suspense & Romance Author.

Cas Courcelles began writing Harlequin Romances (under the name Samantha Day) so she could stay home during the long Canadian winters. Tucked beside a cheery fire, she happily wrote away those winter months. When writing romances began to feel like a job, Cas moved on. First came travel. She and her husband recalled their first road trip to Mexico and decided it was time to go again - this time, though, with more comfort than provided by an old tent or the backseat of a car. With a truck and trailer - Big Clyde and the Mother Ship - they have made several trips into Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, as well to the deserts of the American southwest. At the moment, Cas is writing suspense novels. Down Dark Deep, a Kindle ebook, came to life while she was exploring the deserts, mountains and caverns of southeast Arizona. She found the high, rugged Chiricahua range especially inspiring and set her characters there to tell their story. Those cozy romances are long gone, along with the problem of escaping the snow and cold. Cas met Lorraine on the road in Belize.

Novelist, administrator, history instructor, international consultant, Professor Emeritus at California State University at East Bay, California.

Linda Lambert became enthralled with Egypt as a young girl, when her mother enchanted her with tales of her own alleged reincarnation from Egyptian royalty. In 1989 Linda moved to Egypt and began two decades of passionate exploration. During a visit to the ancient crypt believed to have housed the Holy Family, Linda experienced an epiphany. The result was The Cairo Codex, the first in The Justine Trilogy. Subsequent locations were Italy and Taos, New Mexico. Dr. Lambert has written several internationally-recognized books in the field of educational leadership. Her seventh, Women's Ways of Leading, was released in 2009, integrating her global work in leadership with the same feminine and historical themes that take center stage in her novels. Linda first met Lorraine in 1976, and she and husband Morgan were in Cairo to greet her upon her arrival in 1991. LindaLambert.com

Adventure Travel Writer & Self-Publishing Guru.

Carla King started blogging in 1995, before the word "blog" was invented, by sending online dispatches to the internet from the saddle of a cranky Russian Ural sidecar motorcycle. This wasn't a pleasure ride, her job was to R&D the machine for Ural America and, simultaneously, test ride the art of the realtime internet travel report for O'Reilly & Associates. Both endeavors succeeded, and her trip was followed by others to China, India, Europe, and Africa on Chang Jiangs and Enfields, Moto Guzzis, and more Urals. Carla has written several books, produced many online magazines and websites, and is active in writing communities centered around adventure travel and self-publishing, which she has done for many years, starting with her Cycling the French Riviera guidebook, and the Wild Writing Women: Stories of World Travel anthology. Today she lives in San Diego and looks forward to dual-sport motorcycle, 4x4, and watercraft adventures in Southern California and the Baja Peninsula. Lorraine first heard about Carla while living overlooking the Nairobi Game Park in Kenya, dreaming of her next motorcycle adventure. Less than ten years later, at the third Overland Expo they teamed up for presentations on writing and publishing. CarlaKing.com

Camel Historian/Specialist.

Since 1995, Texas Camel Corps owner Doug Baum has been educating the public about the unique part camels played in opening up America's West. His passion for this lost bit of history led him to begin guiding camel treks for the public in the Big Bend region of Texas, over the very same areas traversed by the original US Army camels in the 1850's and 60's. Baum also offers the more exotic fare of trekking in the Sinai of Egypt to live among the Bedouin of that historic desert. He's authored two academic papers, both of which have been presented during camel conferences at London's School of Oriental and African Studies. Creating new, innovative ways to share these marvelous animals with people is what drives Doug Baum and Texas Camel Corps. Lorraine finally met Doug and his camels in person during a camping trek with at-risk kids from VisionQuest in Arizona.

The approach uses the animals naturally evolved instincts to choose food plants, essential oils and other natural substances to improve their health and which put the animal in charge of their health.
