Hello everybody. I’m clearing the cobwebs from my much neglected blog. Over the last few months I’ve had my head down and been concentrating on writing, which after all is what writers like to do most of all! Here’s my new office; got to make the most of all that lovely sunshine!
One novella, eight children’s stories, one broken laptop and several pots of coffee later, I’m finally back to blogging again and very pleased to announce that my new novella, The Women Friends, based on the work of Gustav Klimt and co-written with the wonderful Miriam Drori, will be available early next year.
The novella is an imaginary take on the lives of two of Klimt’s muses: Janika, a successful Jewish model, and Selina, a country girl, desperate to escape the demons of her past and searching for solace in the glittering city of Vienna.
Here are some of the beautiful images I came across during my research. Expect glamour, absinthe, plenty of coffee and a little bit of romance, set against a backdrop of turmoil and political unrest:
Over the coming months I’ll be blogging about all things Viennese in the early part of the twentieth century.
Hope to see you here again soon.
