Welcome to my free author newsletter.

Journeys in Pages which will arrive in your email inbox approximately six times a year, with occasional extra issues if there is something especially exciting to share. The newsletters include:

  • Mini-essays about travel and the writing journey
  • Destination puzzles and guessing games (with fabulous photo clues)
  • Resources for travellers, readers and writers
  • Travel book club reads and media recommendations
  • News about recent and upcoming publications

Once your subscription is confirmed, I'll send you links to a jigsaw puzzle created from one of my favourite Greek photographs, and an exclusive read of a draft chapter cut from the manuscript because a Peruvian flashback didn’t quite work.

About the Author

Immigrant Australian Sally Jane Smith has visited 33 countries and has lived on five continents.
In 2006, the bus on which she was travelling through Sri Lanka suffered a head-on collision, breaking both her body and her spirit. A decade on, she journeyed to Greece in a quest to recover her wanderlust – and proved it is possible for an out-of-shape, middle-aged woman on a budget, armed only with her mother’s 1978 travel diary, to experience a life-changing adventure.
Sally is the author of “Some Leafs: Grandma Gropp’s Tale” in the anthology Itchy Feet: Tales of Travel and Adventure, "Eleven Thirty" in the Newcastle Short Story Award Anthology 2022, and the manuscript Unpacking for Greece: Turning the Pages from Fear to Fulfilment (working title). She has started her second book-length project, inspired by her seven-week solo journey through Turkey and the emotional landscape of grief.
