#TPQ5: BILL ARNOTT

Land’s Edge by Tim Winton.

This inspired me to write, my book raising money for sick children. When I finally met Tim I was able to thank him. It can be good to meet your heroes.

Walking with Abel by Anna Badkhen.

Sensuous, poetic prose by a role-model for any nonfiction writer and every travel lit author.

The Old Ways by Robert Macfarlane.

Well researched, beautiful travel-esque lit, an author with passion for the outdoors and mastery of the written word.

Manifest Your Destiny by Wayne Dyer.

This book made (and makes) life better. It’s my mantra. Plus, Wayne loved Rumi and Tagore. Walking Away by Simon Armitage. UK Poet Laureate, he can make me cry (in a good way) with a single line. In this nonfiction he treks a path I love, a true poet’s journey.
