I live in Wiltshire, England, with my husband but love to travel and have lived in four continents.

Yanne Larsson – adventurer/sidekick Was born and raised in Helsingborg, Sweden, across the water from Elsinore and Hamlet's Castle. Yet, he rarely made the 20 minute ferry crossing due to seasickness. Yanne is a strong believer in the power of dreams and his perseverance has taken him on a rollercoaster ride from electrician to businessman to world sailor and back. In 2002, he left Helsingborg to sail around the world with his best friend Calle Andersson, who, like him, originally had no sailing experience. He is on his third marriage and his third career, and he isn't even a rock star. Calle Andersson – sidekick/adventurer Born in Eslöv, Sweden, Calle started as an electrician, but his talent for mathematics soon took him to higher studies in electrical engineering. He eventually worked his way up to Managing Director of Peab's electrical division. Since then he has had a long career of management positions at major energy companies. Calle is well-liked wherever he goes, especially in northern Australia and Scotland where his karaoke version of My Way has become part of the local folklore. On the three-year voyage around the world, he showed a natural ability for stowing large quantities of wine. Even though he did his military serviced as an elite commando he did the dishes onboard for three years without complaining. (Yanne did the cooking.) For better or worse, Calle is known for being 100% honest and 150% stubborn. Tracey Christiansen – writer and interpreter for adventurers and sidekicks After travelling the globe for 25 years, British born Tracey Christiansen settled in Sweden with a Danish husband. Having unpacked the boxes from her numerous sojourns and hung the curtains, she decided to concentrate on writing full-time. To date, she's translated and published numerous articles and short stories for a variety of publications and was just putting the finishing touches to her first novel when Yanne and Carl asked her to write their story in English. After being plied with copious glasses of wine, it seems she agreed. When not being a run-off-her-feet mother, chauffeur of two girls, caretaker to one cat and mostly uncomplaining wife, she enjoys reading, napping on the sofa and embarrassing her teenage daughters by dancing in public.
At school Graham was the kid who never paid attention. His English grades were always D or E, and he once received a report from a Geography teacher that said, 'This lad does well to find his way home.' On leaving school he began work in a local factory as a maintenance engineer. After ten years of building and repairing machines he applied to join the police. It was one of his better decisions. He spent several years as a detective and worked on numerous burglary, robbery and murder investigations, retiring in 2011. Graham is the author of two books: Bullies, Ghosts and Jars Full of Smoke, and The Sound Catcher.

I was raised in a conservative Christian home, but later became a student of Eastern thought and religion; I eventually became a Christian minister, trained by world-class Biblical scholars in a notably liberal seminary. At the age of fifty, after more years of study and thought, I converted to the modern Jewish religion, and my studies continued. My beliefs and ideas have gone on evolving, and now I consider myself a devoted Jew, if an obscurely agnostic one (which is not uncommon among modern Jews). Any attempts to categorize or pigeonhole my beliefs or my ideas and perspectives are doomed to failure; I stopped trying to classify my evolving approach and understanding of my religious belief myself, some years ago. I believe in this book. It is my life's work, and the product of a lifetime of study and thought from many different perspectives. I may not live to see my book find its audience and its place; but I know in my heart that one day it will. Its message is at once deeply humanistic and deeply reverent, taking both rational thought and the religious impulse seriously while denigrating neither. It is a product of both my heart and my mind, and though I hold no dogmatic "beliefs" in the conventional sense, I believe that my book communicates some worthwhile principles, thoughts and ideas -- among them the deeply Jewish conviction that nothing -- no belief, no practice, no tradition -- is more important or holier than the life, freedom and dignity of the individual human being. All the rest is secondary, and our task is to bear that highest value in mind and heart while using both to pursue these three -- Truth, Justice, and Peace. All that was true for the man we call Moses more than three thousand years ago, and it remains true for us today.

This pursuit led to an in-depth study of the Beatitudes, which set her on a journey of discovery. In the process, she experienced Christ in a more personal and intimate way. This extraordinary journey provided her with a deeper understanding of God and His divine love. In “A Journey Toward Perfection,” Helen shares her new found insights of living the Christian life by following in the footsteps of Christ and participating in a real, experiential relationship with our Creator.
