Readers & Friends,
sorry I haven’t written to you since before my September trip
to Europe – but my next book, to be published next summer,
has taken me longer than usual to write. Sometimes I’m like a
painter who still goes to the museum, after-hours, and continues to
paint his latest work, even when it is already hanging on the wall!
The book is wonderful, I LOVE the characters, and I can’t wait
for you to read it.
trip was so much fun – we visited our great friends – you
know them in my books as Red & Jerry Shoup – and stayed at
their fantastic house. We attended 8 dinner-parties in the 10 days that
we spent with them – saw old friends, and met new friends, some
of whom will probably turn up as characters in my novels. That’s
the problem when I meet someone, I have a mind that records conversations,
events, sights & sounds. If we ever meet, be careful, or you might
end up on the pages of one of my novels.
that, we went to Saint Tropez – which at the end of the season
is still a “village” with a‘larger-than-life reputation’,
just like Bridget Bardot, who put it ‘on-the-map’ internationally.
We stayed at a fantastic old “Ferme” – a converted
farmhouse. It started out forty years ago as a restaurant with just
4 rooms for friends who didn’t want to make the journey home after
an evening of eating great food and drinking too much rosé wine.
It now has the same marvelous restaurant but has 26 rooms and 26 suites
– on a pine-covered hill close to one of Saint Tropez’s
beaches. Rest & Relaxation, wonderful food, chilled rosé
wine, sunshine and the owls in the pines at night…. What could
then drove past the French border-town of Menton and into Italy. I’d
never been to the part of Italy that continues past the French Riviera
into San Remo, etc. The food was fantastic – but we missed our
paradise in St. Tropez so we returned there for a few days before flying
back from Nice to Los Angeles. So, how to introduce you, my Friends
& Readers, to the beauty of my favorite locations on the French
Riviera and to some of our favorite restaurants, cafés, shops
and sights? And for those of you who’ve already been there, to
show you a new way to enjoy it?
