Janice Simpson – Reading 20th February, 5.00pm
At Well Thumbed Books

Janice will be reading from Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, a travel memoir of her first long distance bicycle ride from Paris to Istanbul. After nervously arriving in Paris, knowing no-one, she rolled out on Day 1 along the Champs Elysees and tried to imagine herself as Cadel Evans. The dream was soon shattered - no media hype, massage teams or carefully prescribed meals, just camping in farmers' fields, negotiating busy roads and wolfing into curried carrots. Thankfully she recovered sufficiently from the experience to continue riding, unable to give up the seduction of slow tourism and fast friendships.

Janice now writes crime fiction and hopes at least one of her novels will be published soon! In the meantime, she is working on a PhD in creative nonfiction at RMIT University and continuing her work as a board member of Bicycle Network.

Janice Simpson – Reading 20th February, 5.00pm
At Well Thumbed Books

Janice will be reading from Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, a travel memoir of her first long distance bicycle ride from Paris to Istanbul. After nervously arriving in Paris, knowing no-one, she rolled out on Day 1 along the Champs Elysees and tried to imagine herself as Cadel Evans. The dream was soon shattered - no media hype, massage teams or carefully prescribed meals, just camping in farmers' fields, negotiating busy roads and wolfing into curried carrots. Thankfully she recovered sufficiently from the experience to continue riding, unable to give up the seduction of slow tourism and fast friendships.

Janice now writes crime fiction and hopes at least one of her novels will be published soon! In the meantime, she is working on a PhD in creative nonfiction at RMIT University and continuing her work as a board member of Bicycle Network.
