Local girl excels! Former Heron Way and Millais student Amy Baker is a writer, an amusing writer, and she has just written her first book – an absolute cracker. Despite well meaning advice from nearest and dearest, colleagues and boss Amy decided to leave her secure job and head off to the other side of the world, often travelling on her own. Fortunately she documented her experiences in her highly entertaining book, aptly entitled Miss Adventures – a tale of ignoring life advice while backpacking around South America. And the good news is that on Thursday (March 16) Amy will be at Waterstones, Horsham from 18.30 to 20.00 for an evening of readings and signing with refreshments. She is no stranger to spreading her wings, telling the District Post: “I’d previously backpacked around Australia, Europe and Asia and was looking for an exciting challenge. South America sounded like the place. Friends had been there, I’d been wanting to see it for myself and it was an opportunity to improve my Spanish!”
