Read full description of the books:
Almost Ice Road Truckers, except for the tulip bulbs... "So here's the plan. I'm going to train to drive a truck and go long-haul. I can get paid and maybe write a book at the same time. What do you reckon?" "Go for it Mum, how bad can it be?"
This is the tale of what happens when a middle-aged mum from England decides to actually drive 18-wheelers across North America instead of just dreaming about it. From early training (when it becomes apparent that negotiating 18 wheels and 13 gears involves slightly more than just learning how to climb in) this rookie overcomes self-doubt, infuriating companions and inconsiderate weather to become a real trucker. She learns how to hit a moose correctly and how to be hijacked. She is almost arrested in Baltimore Docks and survives a terrifying winter tour of The Rockies. Nothing goes well, but that's why there's a book.
Trucking in English began as a blog from the cab and became a popular podcast before taking book form. It is part of Carolyn's 'Armchair Emigration' series.

Read information about the authorCarolyn has been a psychologist, a paramedic, a proof reader and several other things, not all of them beginning with P. She began writing the day she decided to try and see the world…doing both just to find out if she could. It made a change from teaching CPR to nightclub bouncers and designing wedding cakes. Carolyn maintains that she is either multi-faceted or easily bored, depending on who is enquiring.
Born and bred in London, England, Carolyn and her son Ben are now Canadian citizens and live permanently back in Kitchener, Ontario. They ran a bed and breakfast there for five years because Canadian Immigration demanded that she buy a business.
When Ben left for university Carolyn decided to see a bit more of North America. She trained to drive 18-wheelers and hit the road as a lady trucker to see what would happen. There is, of course, book. The oddly frightening tale of the B&B will be next, forming an Armchair Emigration series.
Carolyn remains on the lookout for mad jobs to try, in case they are interesting enough to write about.
