Bienvenue !

Thank you for taking the time to visit my web site.  If you’re here, it might be because you heard about my novel somewhere and wanted to know a little more.

Writing has been my dream since I was a little girl.  A friend recently reminded me that she and I wrote “novels” together and pretended to publish them all the way back in 5th grade.  I’ve written a lot since then– term papers, job applications, articles for a trade publication…  I even co-wrote.a book on digital platforms in French, but never any fiction.

Until now, with Sunrise over Paris.

I had a ball researching it.  I hope you have just as much fun reading it.

Raindrops on roses... a few of my favorite things, Parisian style

photo of a small Statue of Liberty
stained glass windows inside a church
A woman holding a rooster in front of the Eiffel Tower
A snail looks at the camera from behind the stem of a flower.
A beautiful mirror seen through a gilded doorway
Rows and rows of flowers in bloom in the Giverny gardens
A lady wearing a mask, in the dark, with white letters projected onto her
The edge of an island and ocean seen from an airplane

Above are three portraits of me, the stained glass windows at Saint Sulpice (not sure I was able to do them justice in my novel), Monet’s garden in Giverny, a friend who popped by to say hello in my own garden, and a shot from an airplane off the coast of Key West.  I realize of course that Key West is not Parisian, but Heminway lived in both places…

As for the last photo– I love walking in Paris.  You never know you’ll discover.  I especially enjoy reading the shop names.  Some of them are so bad you wonder if they’re ironic.  The photo here is a real shop in Paris– and what better way to end this web page? Thank you for spending this time with me.  I’ll keep a lookout for a boutique called “Merci” !
