...joyful, moving and stereotype-busting...
National Geographic Traveller
Lois’ books have been published throughout the world and translated into several languages. They have never been out of print and continue to inspire and entertain readers on all continents, often being cited as the inspiration for a whole new generation of adventurers, male and female.
The legendary Irish travel author, Dervla Murphy described Lois’ books as ‘a satisfying blend of action, thought and feeling’, and it is this distinctive style and unique approach to both her travels and her writing that has won Lois a legion of loyal fans across the globe.
Lois’ first book came about when she began posting updates on her website while riding solo from Alaska to Argentina. The year was 2003, there was no such thing as social media and the phrase ‘going viral’ had yet to be invented – but that is essentially what happened to her online travelogue. Her site quickly picked up thousands of followers, including a New York literary agent. Upon returning home, the rights to Lois on the Loose were sold at a heated auction and Lois finally found her true calling.
