See my latest review at Self Publishing Review – SPR –

“The plot is well-developed with some genuine surprises, and Gina Martin is a stellar protagonist: smart, confident, and independent.”

Périgueux – the main setting for my next novel. Deeper Colors coming in 2016.

Begin the journey here.

The ‘capital’ of the Dordogne department is set towards the north of the region. Many miles from the Dordogne River, it is actually found on the Isle River.

The town has been in existence since neolithic times, and later became an important Roman centre. The town suffered a great deal in the Middle Ages through the Hundred Years War and other conflicts in the region, then had a ‘rebirth’ – and much construction in the town dates from this time – in the 16th century. From the 18th century onwards, Perigueux continues to be an important centre for the region.

 

Can I hitch a ride to Périgueux – France?


People say how can I possibly write about a place I have never visited.(Even though it is a novel – fiction.)  What with the Internet research, Google maps, travel blogs, etc.,  I think I have done a pretty good job, but people keep complaining. So I guess I need to go to Périgueux (That’s in the Dordogne region of France).  Unfortunately I can’t afford it, not even the air tickets, much less the room and food and transportation, etc. for the weeks I am told I should stay there to get the real flavor of the place.

They say there are just six degrees of separation between us and everyone else in the world. So my questions is- does anyone know anyone, who knows anyone, who knows anyone, who knows anyone, who knows anyone — is that six? — who lives there and can be my vicarious sensory describer or else someone in Périgueux who would put an aspiring novelist up for a while and/or help with getting said novelist there?

Ridiculous, I know, but it can’t hurt to ask.
