From the Author
An art history trip to study the Italian Renaissance inspired me towrite essays on Italy. One was included in a wonderful anthology, Italy: A Love Story: Women Write About the Italian Experience
(Seal Press). My father was a painter, trained in the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I grew up watching him and his fellow artists at work in the studio they shared. Their imagination, concentration, and intensity of purpose fascinated me and made me want to create. I like drawing and painting, but writing was always my dream, and writing about a famous artist became one of my writing goals. The Renaissance Club
has fulfilled that goal -- but I'm not ready to stop! Another novel featuring artists is in process. Perhaps to become a series.
