Who doesn’t love Paris??

                 

                     Oui, j'aime Paris!  

     

I have loved Paris since my student days at the Sorbonne. Years later, I returned to work there as a writer….and now, every chance I get, I visit my Parisian friends and am renewed by this City of Lights.

     

When I return to the places I lived in those long-ago days, they instantly transport me to those times of  joy... and of sadness and struggle. It is both the joie de vivre and the tristesse that inspired me to write my first novel.  "The past is prologue," Shakespeare wrote, and while the novel includes a spicy mix of Hollywood show-biz and Parisian romance, its story takes us from the free-spirited 70s back to the 60s where indeed the past becomes prologue: With the Supreme Court's reversal of Roe vs. Wade, we are thrust into the new/old frightening times when a woman's only reproductive choice is illegal and even life-threatening.
