All About Me
I think the cover blurb from my first book, The Rookie Rep, best describes where I am now -
"Who’d be a holiday rep? Yes you do see some wonderful places and maybe even spend some time lounging in the sun reading a book, but mostly you’re dealing with complaining customers, unhelpful hotel staff, missing managers and rival reps.
When she’s not rearranging room allocations or taking care of accident prone holidaymakers, our rookie rep is refereeing personality clashes, appeasing local restaurateurs and chasing errant coach drivers. She also has to play psychologist to the troubled souls who come to get away from it all but have probably brought it with them. Simply trying to close her eyes for five minutes before the early morning call comes through from reception and it all starts again is an elusive luxury.
From skiing trips to beach holidays, trekking to tennis tournaments, sit back as our enthusiastic rep takes you through a year in the life of a novice who has to learn on the job and soon realizes that for her the real holiday starts the day she gets home."
