Nan Watkins is a reference librarian at Western Carolina University whose work has been published in several Seal Press anthologies, including A Woman Alone and Hot Flashes from Abroad. After the sudden death of her 23-year-old son, and her subsequent divorce, it seemed natural to Watkins to celebrate her 60th birthday by taking a trip around the world. Purchasing an airline ticket good for one year as long as she traveled in one direction, Watkins began traveling east, visiting friends and places she had seen before and places she had only dreamed of seeing. These included such diverse locations as Ireland, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Hawaii, to name a few.
