Following a degree in Latin American Studies Sarah Cameron has been traveling and writing on the Americas ever since, both as an economist for a British bank and more lately as an author of guide books. Sarah still dabbles in South America but concentrates on the Caribbean, with many titles for Insight Guides and Berlitz under her belt. When she is not touring the Caribbean sampling beaches and rum cocktails, she retreats to her 17th-century farmhouse in rural Suffolk (England).
