Darlene Foster's Blog

Guest Post: Darlene Foster

Posted on: January 18, 2020

I am pleased to be featured as a guest on Beetley Pete’s blog where I talk about how I turned my own travel experiences into books for kids.


I am delighted to be able to bring you a guest post from the lovely Darlene Foster, a Canadian blogger and published author.

Here is her own short bio.

Brought up on a ranch in Canada, Darlene dreamt of travelling the world and meeting interesting people. She has always loved to tell stories and was encouraged by her grade three teacher to write them down. She is the author of the exciting adventure series featuring 12-year-old Amanda Ross who loves to travel. Readers of all ages enjoy travelling with Amanda as she unravels one mystery after another in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Spain, England, Germany, Holland and her own country, Canada. When not travelling herself, Darlene divides her time between the sunny Costa Blanca of Spain and the west coast of Canada.

And this is her unedited guest post.

Thanks for reblogging, Darlene. It was an excellent post indeed. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.

My pleasure. I’m pleased you liked it. All the best.

I enjoyed catching a few more details of your fascinating life.

Thanks, Anne. People often ask me how I got started writing my books and where I get my ideas from.

Just left a comment on Pete’s blog, Darlene. Lovely guest post.

Excellent interview–RT

Heading over to read the rest, Darlene. 🙂

I appreciate your comments.

Great Darlene, going over to read.

Pleased you enjoyed the article.

Great guest feature….love your work!

Congratulations on the reblog. I think the way you have developed your travel series is wonderful. As adults we are excited but in a different way. Your way of tying a child’s perspective with an adventure is the best way to experience new worlds. You are awesome!

Thank you so much! I appreciate your comments. Have a great week!!

You sure do get around, Darlene, virtually and in reality. You’re a book-writing role model!

No grass grows beneath my feet!! I tend to need to keep moving!

Can’t wait to read this … heading over to Pete’s blog! 😀

Thanks, Annika for your comments on Pete’s blog.

I loved this, Darlene! Good to see you over at Pete’s.

Thanks, Jennie. I love this blogging community.

You are welcome, Darlene. I feel the same way. When Pete posted about a fellow blogger who had been absent but was fine, that struck me as a real community. Our community. ❤️

Darlene I loved to read how Amanda in Arabia came to be. Wonderful that you knew from such a young age what you wanted in life. As I’ve often said you are inspiring in the way you have made your dreams come true.

It’s interesting as not everything did turn out the way I planned. You know, “Life happens when you’re making other plans.” But in some ways, it turned out even better. I have always been able to face challenges and turn things around, instead of crying the blues. Dad always said, “Life is what you make it.” xo

Good for you Darlene! An attitude we could all model from.

I popped over to Krysten Lindsay Hager’s blog and read your guest post. It was uplifting!

Thanks, Priscilla. I’ve been lucky to have been invited to be a guest on a couple of blogs recently. I’m glad you find them worthwhile.
