On Thursday, December 8, 2011 tune in for an interview with Jo Linsdell, author of Italian For Tourists.
Italian For Tourists: Pocket Edition a phrasebook published through the online content marketplace Lulu.com is a basic guide to the Italian language covering phrases and words most needed by tourists. It includes all the words and phrases a tourist is likely to need during their stay in Italy as well as a pronunciation guide and a map of Italy.
Before becoming a writer Jo spent time as a waitress, shop assistant, credit controller, receptionist, tour guide and secretary to name a few. Luckily she came to her senses and started taking her writing seriously. Since then she's managed to convince editors and other members of the writing industry to work with her, gaining several awards along the way. When she's not writing articles, updating guides or adding to the word count of her books in progress, she's researching social media news (one of her big passions), reading, getting fit with her Wii or shopping. That is of course when she's not with her husband and busy being a mummy to their two young sons.
She is also the creator and manager of the multi award winning site Writers and Authors and founder and organizer of Promo Day an international online event for people in the writing industry.
