I came from the world of politics, having worked 12 years on Capitol Hill creating words for politicians. In 1978, I decided I wanted to create them for myself, so I moved to Paris, where I freelanced for the International Herald Tribune, the London Sunday Times and a series of magazines. I also edited a number of books, usually on business topics, and started up a quarterly newsletter for the International Chamber of Commerce. In 2004, I completed my first book, French America, a visual history of the French heritage in the United States. I only started doing imaginative fiction in 2007 at a writer's workshop in Florence. But the fire has been lit, and I want to do more.
