Roving Jay reviews Postcards from the Ege

Travel writer, Roving Jay, reviews Postcards from the Ege by Springtime author, Jack Scott. “In Jack’s own words, his postcards are a personal perspective of what he’s ‘seen and done, liked and disliked’ in Turkey. Although he’s relocated back to the UK, Jack’s love affair with Turkey has endured. If you’re considering visiting Turkey, his Postcards entice you with titbits, and make you hungry for more.” More from Jay | About the Book

Tanya Crossman talks parallel lives

Tanya Crossman talks parallel lives

Tanya Crossman, author of Misunderstood, discusses the culture gap between #TCKs and their parents. “Something I’ve heard a lot of expat parents say is that their whole family is ‘in it together’ or that they are ‘called’ together. The basic assumption is that all members of the family go abroad and live overseas together – they are bonded by the same experience. When I hear this, however, I think two things: First, I am so glad you and your kids are on the same team! But, are you aware that you aren’t sharing the same experience?

Lindsay de Feliz reviews Turkey Street

Lindsay de Feliz reviews Turkey Street

“Turkey Street is full of the double entendre which Jack uses so well, making this a book you should never read on a train or a plane as your fellow passengers will wonder why you are giggling every few seconds and then roaring with laughter. But Turkey Street is much more than a comedy and a description of Turkish life. As you read it you are smacked in the face with the harsh realities of life as an expat.” Lindsay de Feliz, author of the Summertime Publishing best seller, What About Your Saucepans? About Turkey Street.

Do you still have cleavage with just one breast? Love in action

‘Sue is love in action. Daring to share her personal (and intimate) diary – which provided her a safe place to express her own experience of cancer – in order to help others is just one example. Her empowering tips at the end are valuable not just for those experiencing cancer, but also things which you did not choose, would not have chosen and would not have wished for yourself but still have to find your way through.’ Colleen Reichrath-Smith, co-author of A Career in Your Suitcase About the Book

Summertime author, Tanya Crossman talks to DrieCulturen

Interview with Tanya Crossman, author of Misunderstood, the impact of growing up overseas in the 21st century. When and where did you first hear of the term “Third Culture Kid” (TCK)? How did you hear of it and in which way did it help you? When I first started working with TCKs I didn’t know that there was such a thing as a TCK! I quickly realised there was something different about these kids due to their unique situations, but it was still two or three years before I started reading literature on the topic. David Pollock and Ruth Van Reken’s classic Third Culture Kids was eye-opening....

Misundertstood, a must have #TCK book

“Misunderstood, indeed! This book is a ‘must have’ for anyone who is interested in or works within Third Culture Life. The information and real-life experiences shared reflect the reality of what it is to be a ‘global citizen’ and the importance of having a framework to support TCKs/Expat Youth. I plan to use this book as a resource, and I highly recommend it to others.
