In the KNOW!

Diann Schindler served 25 years in higher education, first as an instructor of writing and ultimately college president. When she retired, she dabbled in tennis, music, and writing. Yet, her dream was to travel and write books. In 2015, her fantasy was realized.

She sold her house, her car, and all her possessions, save her tennis racket and Taylor guitar, and began her odyssey in Portugal. Four years later, Diann had explored 46 countries in 5 continents.

With world as her muse, this solo nomad wrote her first novel, “Just A Girl” and it sold very well. It was ranked “sixth best coming-of-age fiction in 2107” by Amazon.

Her friends, in American and abroad, urged her to write

Loiba, Spain

 her nonfiction book, “The Essential Guide to a Life of Travel: the ABC’s International Travel.” 

Her third book, “Claim Denied”, an electrifying international cyber-espionage thriller, emerged from her experiences as a higher educational consultant at an American university in Kosovo. Publication is early winter, 2021.

Diann's podcasts are fun, informative, and lively, focusing on her travels; personal experiences, challenges, and reflections; writing tips; and love stories, fictional, of course.

For now, Amelia Island, Florida is her home. When she isn’t writing, podcasting, biking, or swimming, Diann is drinking wine with friends.

You can reach her through her website, DiannAbroad, or at diann@DiannAbroad.com.  She would love to hear from you!

I have found that I cannot count on apartments or hotels to have the cleaning products I need when I need them.  And, often, I need products immediately.  I choose not to buy products because the bottles contain much more product than I need and I refuse carry more than I need in my luggage.
