Scan 195Welcome on a journey back in time, to the dark, dangerous. glamorous 1930s Paris.

If you love reading about history, romance, art and fashion — or if you just love Paris — you’ll find lots to interest you on my blog: extraordinary forgotten classics, creative inspiration, and a sense of the rich and tragic events of a fascinating era. You can also read excerpts from my work-in-progress, the romantic thriller “The Minotaur in Paris.”

I’m excited to share with you in my blog what I’m learning while writing this book. Come explore 1930s Paris: the crossroads of art, literature, music, design and fashion; the hunting ground of spies, villains and heros; the symbolic heart of our civilization; and — then as now — the most beautiful city on earth.

Understanding the triumphs and tragedies of the recent past has enriched my life immensely. I hope it will enrich yours too. Feel free to contribute and leave your feedback. Thanks for visiting!
