Karen Brown began researching, writing and publishing her first two titles whilst travelling in France and Britain at the age of nineteen. Karen enlisted the aid of her mother, Clare Brown, a former travel agent (whose experience proved invaluable) and followed up with books on Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Ireland and Germany. June Brown, an English woman, no relation, was recruited to the staff. This talented Karen Brown trio are solely responsible for the research, writing and production of these guides and personally visit every inn that is included.
