Leslie Carroll's interview on NPR's TRAVEL WITH RICK STEVES

The marvelous and engaging Rick Steves, travel guru extraordinare, interviewed me in March 2010 about traveling in the footsteps of famous royals. It was a marvelous opportunity to discuss my 2010 nonfiction release, NOTORIOUS ROYAL MARRIAGES, and thanks to the broadcast, my book sales have skyrocketed.

The interview aired in mid-August 2010.

Here's the link to the interview. Please note that via the magic of Mr. Steves' editing, my segment is preceded, quite serendipitously, by an interview with Elizabeth Gilbert, author of EAT, PRAY, LOVE, which was adapted into a major (and just released) motion picture, starring Julia Roberts.

I listened to your Rick Steves interview. Great stuff! I was wondering about the question Rick asked you about royal couples that were "true love". You mentioned you had two, one was Victoria and Albert. Which couple was the second?

Thanks for your comment RedAbacus! The other couple that was truly a love match was Nicholas (Tsar Nicholas II) and Alexandra.

Wonderful interview! What a treat to talk to Mr Steves -- but I would also say the same for him about you! :)
