WELCOME - go to my HOME page to learn more about these published books or scroll down to see what's coming next.


These are the first of a series of books I am writing from my 15 years of experience as a Seniors' Tour Guide and Tour Operator. They are fun, enlightening and hopefully entertaining.

The first book - NZ's Wild West Coast begins in the central North Island and wends its way south, down the west coast to Queenstown.  

15 passengers, a 22 seater bus, a 40-something hostess and a 60-something bus driver are all the ingredients needed for one of Tess's Seniors Tours through NZ and with passengers like Fanny Adams, Gladioli Flowers and Tuppence Fortesque you know it's gonna be a fun trip. But how will the dear old things cope when disaster strikes? Find out for yourselves - jump on board and buckle up, it's gonna be a rocky ride.
