“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.” ~William Faulkner
My deep love is for writing fiction ...
I’m currently at work on my first novel, working titled THE GOLDEN WILLOW.
THE GOLDEN WILLOW is set in New Orleans and coastal Italy, about a woman who sets out to recover a painting of her grandmother which was lost in World War II, and as she retraces her grandmother’s life, discovers a story that no one has ever known.
