bio: Carolyn Marsden writes multicultural novels for children ages 7-15. She was born in Mexico City of missionary parents and now is happily married (in spite of the Land Rover rescue!) to a Thai husband. Together they have two daughters.
My Thai husband sent me to Belize to retrieve the exotic Land Rover that he bought off EBay from Holland. I decided to chronicle the absurd and dramatic trip-- dysfunctional vehicle, being chased by a Category 5 hurricane, traveling through the lands of the Mexican drug cartels-- in a series of panels. These first panels show the previous Land Rovers that entered our lives, setting the stage for the arrival of Roger Rover.
