Istanbul Love Bus, a novel



Tom Brosnahan visited France for the first time in 1966, and instantly fell in love with the country, its history, culture, and cuisine.

He lived in Provence and Paris for awhile during the 1970s, and returned in the late 1980s to re-write the Paris and Nice chapters of Frommer's Europe on $40 a Day (1990 edition). After visits to Champagne, the Dordogne and the Loire Valley, and more visits to Bordeaux and Paris, he decided it was time to fulfill his lifelong dream of writing a guide to France—online.

Tom started his career as a travel guidebook writer in 1968 by writing Frommer's Turkey on $5 a Day. Over the next 35 years, his 30 guidebooks for Insight, Berlitz, Frommer's and Lonely Planet covered Belize, Canada, Egypt, England, France, Guatemala, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, New England, Tunisia and Turkey. They have sold over four million copies worldwide in more than ten languages.

Tom Brosnahan has served as a Contributing Editor to Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel magazine, and his articles and photographs have also appeared in other leading magazines and newspapers such as ASTA Travel News, BBC World, Chicago Tribune, Daily Telegraph (London), Diversion, New York Daily News, New York Times, Odyssey, Travel & Leisure and Travel Life.

In February 1994, Tom founded the Travel Info Exchange™, an online travel information service with special conferences for travel authors. The Travel Info Exchange was the recipient of the gold medal in the Electronic Media category of the Society of American Travel Writers' 1994 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition.

In 2002 he began developing his travel websites, which have received as many as 6 million visits annually.

He has been a consultant on travel information and its design to major corporations, publishers, foundations and government entities. He was also a co-founder of the Society of American Travel Writers' Institute for Travel Writing and Photography.

He has appeared on numerous television and radio programs, including ABC's Good Morning America, NPR's Talk of the Nation, the Travel Channel and PRI's The Connection.

Tom is the author of several novels, including Istanbul Love Bus and Paris Girls Secret Society. More...
