In Trucking in English Steele, an immigrant to Canada from England, learns to drive 18-wheelers and sets off across North America to see what life is like for a lady long-haul trucker. “I’d watched these huge monsters on the roads since emigrating here,” Steele explains. “I developed a fascination with what it might be like to drive one. I had no idea how difficult it would be, but that was part of the fun.” Steele blogged her adventures from the cab as she drove, gaining numerous fans. She then recorded some of her stories as regular podcasts which reached a wider audience. The requests for a book began to accumulate.
Readers are offering enthusiastic reviews for Trucking in English. “Vicarious bliss,” says reader Joanna Allardice. “Great to get hold of another slice of a life less ordinary from our witty and somewhat less than conventional author!” Since immigrating to Canada in 2002, Steele has authored two books of humorous observations on the life transatlantic. The first, A Year on Planet Alzheimer was published in 2004 and a third book to be published in 2013 will complete the Armchair Emigration trilogy.
