@AnastasiaAshman yes, it's what inspired me! What made you specifically speak out about identifying expat lit as a genre in its own right?

Thanks to expat author in Dubai Faye Brann for interviewing me about #expat #literature and the #publishing world's opportunities to capture expat lit's readers. She blogs about it here. Here's the interview as it was conducted on Twitter this week -- which is where Faye and I met!
Faye is working on her first book, There’s No Place Like Home, to "look at the often misunderstood life of the ‘trailing spouse’ abroad". At her blog she explores the gap in the market for narrative expat literature.
