About the Author
My very first memory of life was the sound of my mother's glorious voice singing to me, most likely a Brahms lullaby, and I'm convinced that is why music always has a delicious way of creeping into my writing and becomes one of the most important elements. I spent twenty years in Europe because of my father, who was with the U.S. Diplomatic Corps, and my mother who was an opera singer. I worked mainly as a simultaneous interpreter and translator as I am a linguist and speak several languages, five of which are fluent. Because of my exposure to people of different nations my writing includes many foreign settings and cultures. I am a proud mother of a gallant Marine who served in Iraq, and among the members of our household you will find Louie the cat, so named because of his clawing love of Louis XV and XVI furniture, and surely thinks he must have been a fearless Marine in one of his former lives.

This is one of those books that one must "digest" as you look at the pictures. Profound quotations with a most appropriate picture included.
I selected my favorite and it is by Mother Teresa. "Love is a fruit in season at all times, and in reach of every hand".
Most highly recommended.

The author is an artist and is a very capable entertainer. I especially enjoyed the photos of the more exotic locales.
