Carla King is an adventure travel author, journalist, blogger, speaker, and writing and publishing coach. In 1995, Carla pioneered the art of the internet travelogue (now called blogs) with stories about breakdowns in small towns all around the USA from the saddle of a Russian Ural sidecar motorcycle. Other trips on unreliable indigenous motorcycles took her to India, China, Europe, Baja, and Morocco. Carla is founder of the Destination Published author coaching service, Self-Publishing Boot Camp workshops and courses, the Author Friendly Podcast, and a post-covid Virtual Travel Writing Group. She speaks widely about writing and publishing in the adventure travel and literary worlds, at events like Overland Expo and the SF Writer’s Conference.
