MY WRITING


"For my part I know nothing with certainty,
but the sight of the stars makes me dream."

~ Vincent Van Gogh






From the time I was a child, travel has always been my dream. And now my love of travel has inspired me to write; about mature women pursuing their dreams and dealing with mid-life issues while discovering the places I love. My first novel, Postcards from Van Gogh, takes the reader on a journey aboard a French river cruise to the fragrant lavender fields of Provence and the glittering Côte d'Azur.

Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh spent the latter years of his life in Provence and produced some of his greatest work there, including the iconic sunflowers which he painted for his friend, Paul Gauguin. Van Gogh left behind not only a rich legacy of paintings but also a collection of letters written to his beloved brother, Theo – words that continue to speak to a new generation of his fans.
