Trudy left her native Nova Scotia home for a three year round-the-world journey, writing travel articles all the way. She got sidetracked in Hong Kong and spent over a year working for The Hong Kong Standard, an English language daily in Hong Kong. Finally, she decided to abandon the glitter and tinsel of Asia’s boomtown for downhome hospitality and the good life. Trudy has a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism, a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Arts in French. She speaks several languages.
Trudy has written for a number of regional and national publications, as well as a wide variety of other projects, everything from medical research compendiums and assorted ghost writing/public relations projects, to short stories and a travel book, entitled Off the Beaten Path in the Maritime Provinces. The sixth edition was released in the spring of 2007.
