Sandi ToksvigSANDI TOKSVIG

The daughter of a foreign correspondent, Sandi has been travelling all her life. She grew up in Europe, Africa and America, at one point the family gave their permanent address as care of the Samsonite company.

She has now settled in the UK which she has sailed around with John McCarthy and toured throughout with many shows. She has also canoed across Africa and explored other distant parts for the BBC. She has just completed travel filming for BBC ONE's Holiday programme in Palm Springs and Majorca and is about to set off to cover parts of California, Washington State and southern Spain.

In between, she writes. She has published many children's books, two adult novels and this autumn The Gladys Society, an American travel book in which Sandi tracks down eleven girls she was close to in her New York High School days.
