Season's Greetings and latest news

What a year this has been, starting with the release of the new, completely revised 3rd edition of White Lie in January and my second book The Eye of Ra in February. I've done interviews for several radio shows and over the Spring, Summer and Autumn I was a tour guide for hundreds of people from around the world. I also started writing the first 2 chapters of a new book, planning to complete the story this Winter.
However, on November 21st my darling mother passed away and I had to go to Holland, where I arrived just on time to be with her during her last few days. We are all heartbroken and it will take some time to heal. Also, my 'normal' day job in tourism here in Cathar Country already starts at the end of March 2016. Therefore, this third book of my 'time travel trilogy' won't be published until 2017.

Of course I am still researching and plotting, excited about the subject of my new book, very happy with the first 2 chapters and eager to continue when I get the chance. I have also come up with a new title, which will be revealed soon. However, realistically, I won't be able to finish the story and have it edited within the next 12 months. It needs my full attention and must not be rushed.

Plans for 2016
Following the advice of a New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry and his wife Liz (ITW), I decided to release my books on E-book after all, so this Winter I will release both White Lie and The Eye of Ra on Kindle. In January I will be working on the formatting, hoping to have the books online and available before the Spring season starts. I am also looking forward to a future interview for the ITW magazine "The Big Thrill".

What Steve Berry wrote about 'White Lie':
"This story resonates with spirit and history, seamlessly blending myth with reality into a chilling and foreboding read."
Thank you Steve!

The new paperback version is now online, so make sure you don't buy second hand copies if you want to order the paperback edition. Personalized, autographed bookplates are available on request.

From 6th January onward I will be available for interviews and guided tours through Cathar Country, France. More info and contact details are on my website:


Wishing you all Happy Holidays!
Have an absolutely fabulous 2016!

From Occitania, with Love!
