The newest edition of MOON BELIZE (2013) is available

I am super pleased to share that my first edition of MOON BELIZE is finally here, in print, in full color!

I received my complimentary author copies yesterday– a complete surprise and a wonderful send off as I head to Guadeloupe Islands.


I snapped these images with my i-Phone and in a poorly-lit room, so fear not, it looks better than that (ha).

Folks who pre-ordered have received Amazon alerts that their orders are being fulfilled. It should be just >> a matter of days now until it’s available in bookstores, or you could place your order online and get it fulfilled now!

I hope this book helps you plan your ideal Belize getaway, and explore all the wonderful things that make Belize such a special destination.

Thanks again to all the wonderful folks in Belize who helped me make this book happen and made this tough, exciting job an exhilarating experience, every step of the way.

I do have some more great news to share, but I’ll save it for my return from Guadeloupe Islands (smile).

Happy weekend and thank you all for your support, and for spreading the word.

Dreams really do come true.
