Sue Ellen and Kristine at a working slate mine in the Lake District
My special guest today is USA Today bestselling author Sue Ellen Welfonder, who writes historical romances set in medieval Scotland under own name, as well as Scottish-set paranormal romances as Allie Mackay. On a personal level, Sue Ellen and I have been sister/friends for close to thirty years. Yup. Thirty.
Sue Ellen's heart has always belonged to Scotland - she's traveled there extensively and has an in-depth knowledge of it's history. So who else would I have called upon to head up the Scottish Tours division of Number One London Tours? My initial phone call to Sue Ellen went something like this:
KHP: Hey, Bozzy, it's me.
(Note: I have called Sue Ellen "Bozzy," after diarist James Boswell, since our first trip to England together. Like Boswell, Sue Ellen documents everything with copious diary entries. She calls me "Gorgeous" because she's nuts).
KHP: Can you put together a Scottish itinerary for Number One London? Oh, and by the way, you are now Vice President in charge of the Scottish Division.
SEW:What? I am? What does that even mean?
KHP: It means you'll be coming up with the itineraries for all of our Scotland tours. Oh, and you'll be coming along on the Scottish tours as the tour guide.
SEW: I will?
KHP: You'll have to, Bozzy. I don't know anything about Scotland. Think of a theme for the tour and then build an itinerary around that. Easy peasy.
