To Go Making Paths
by Joan Bliss

To Go Making Paths is the follow-up to Joan’s first book, A Path Made by Walking, and covers her life after leaving England aged 19, with just £20.00 in her pocket, to the next 16 years she spent living abroad and travelling the world.

Joan led a fascinating life and To Go Making Paths takes us from her early years struggling to make ends meet in the South of France, to her job with a shady diamond dealer and to writing gossip columns, letters to the editor and horoscopes for a local paper. Latterly, realising she wanted more from life, she worked to gain entry to Geneva University, studying child development with world famous psychologist, Jean Piaget. Seeing her qualities, Piaget appointed her to the university staff while she was still an undergraduate. Her growing reputation led to further opportunities – such as teaching in the USA and making films for the BBC about child development.

Joan worked with Piaget until he retired, taking on responsibility for part of a large project designed to improve the teaching of mathematics in the UK, and this period is also covered in To Go Making Paths. Later she returned to the UK to teach maths in a UK university. Soon after, she met her future husband and from there a whole new life opened up.
