Author Biography - Loraine Wilson

In 1979, after returning from a spell in the early Dubai building boom, Loraine Wilson swapped life as an Architectural Assistant for trek leading, mainly in the mountains of Greece. A lifelong hillwalker and backpacker, she has been walking the Cretan mountains since 1982. In 1995 a course in Heritage Management alerted Loraine to the necessity of encouraging inland tourism in Crete, and her guidebooks aim to make a positive contribution to it.
