The North American paperback edition of PARIS was published April , 2014.  If you are thinking of a visit to Paris, I personally love September and October.

Paris : City of love. City of revolution.  This thrilling and romantic story opens in La Belle Époque, the golden, hedonistic age of peace and joie de vivre. Moving back and forth in time across centuries, the story unfolds through intimate and vivid tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, passion, and long-kept secrets both fictional and true, set against the backdrop of the city - from the summit of Montmartre to the gothic towers of Notre Dame to the grand boulevards of Saint-Germain, from the medieval world of saints and scholars to the modern French ideals of liberté, égalité, fraternité.   Read More and Purchase





Did You Know?
The Norman invasion of Britain in October, 1066 began with the Battle of Hastings which, despite its name, actually occurred 6.5 miles northwest of Hastings near the present day town of Battle. The first man recorded to be killed in the battle was William the Conqueror’s jester, Taillefer, who initiated the battle by taunting the English and juggling his sword! One vulgar joke too many!
