About the Author

Jennifer S. Alderson worked as a journalist and website developer in Seattle, Washington, USA, before trading her financial security for a backpack. After traveling extensively around Asia and Central America, she moved to Darwin, Australia, before finally settling in the Netherlands. There she earned degrees in art history and museum studies. Home is now Amsterdam, where she lives with her Dutch husband and young son. Jennifer's travels and experiences color and inform her internationally-oriented fiction. Her first novel, Down and Out in Kathmandu: Adventures in backpacking, is a travel fiction adventure through Nepal and Thailand. The Lover's Portrait: An Art Mystery, her second book, is a suspenseful 'whodunit?' which transports readers to wartime and present day Amsterdam. Both are part of an on-going yet stand-alone series following the adventures of traveler and culture lover, Zelda Richardson. The third installment, another art-related travel thriller (working title: Smuggler's Deceit) will be released in the fall of 2017. Her travelogue, Notes of a Naive Traveler: Nepal and Thailand, is a must-read for those interested in learning more about - or wishing to travel to - Nepal and Thailand.
