Author Biography

Isabel Dyson was born in Kent, England, in the 1980s and grew up in the richly historic, coastal town of Deal. The spirit of adventure was instilled in her from a young age, having grown up with two older brothers when it was still OK to play out in the street and swim in the icy waters of the English Channel.

Her taste for exploration was nourished by a television-free family home and fuelled by an early love of books, camping holidays, and relatives that were spread across the globe.

Isabel pursued her love of books and writing by later studying literature at university where she wrote for and edited the news for the student newspaper. After graduating, she moved to London without a job but soon found herself applying her skills in marketing.

While living in London, she met Byron, who matched her desire to travel with one for motorbikes. After a few years, they saved enough money to combine their passions and undertake a journey from Alaska to Argentina on an R100RS BMW, fondly named the Flying Aga. They documented their adventure in a blog before Isabel turned it into her first book on their return.

Isabel currently lives with Byron in Lincolnshire (a biker's paradise) where they are saving again for their next journey.
