Writing

My deep love is for writing fiction ...

 “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

Fiction

Cinque Terre, Italy

My novel THE GOLDEN WILLOW is set in New Orleans and coastal Italy, and is about a young woman from the vineyards of Cinque Terre, an unforgettable piece of art lost in Venice in WWII Italy, and her granddaughter’s quest to recover that particular painting over sixty years later.

More to come soon, as The Golden Willow is out on submission.

The Inspiration for My Novel The Golden Willow

I’m currently working on a new novel, set in Prague.
