My novel Who Needs Paris? is inspired by the two times I lived in Paris -- in the 60s when I attended the Sorbonne, and then in 1977 when I returned as a writer.  

As  I wrote about Paris, I was transported back to times of fun and romance, but also to life's most challenging paths. Memories shifted along with my character Kate...and her essence is found in the pages of Who Needs Paris?
