ading as a child, and I hope children nowadays are not so very different.
Birds and animals have always been part of my life and they keep cropping up in what I write. Ebony and Spica tells the true story of a blackbird and a starling, both of whom became members of the family. A cat plays an important role in the novel A Paris Haunting, while Candlepower features a character who mysteriously attracts birds. For children, Tobias and the Demon is an adventure story told by a dog. In Flora and the Wolf, a girl suddenly finds that she can understand what birds and animals are saying. As for The Story of an Ordinary Lion, the idea of adapting this old legend came to me during a trip to Venice, and I am particularly fond of the main character, Leo, the small lion. I believe this last is a story for young and old, not only for children.
My novels could be classified as contemporary fiction with a paranormal twist. The unexplained has always intrigued me. I am currently working on a sequel to Candlepower.
My latest novel, Woman in Blue and White, takes place partly in Paris and partly in Greece. Bizarre experiences haunt the central character, and she must discover what they mean if she is ever to find happiness....
