Our keys for the three-room flat on the second European floor (third floor by American standards) arrived last week. Our passports are in order. Airplane tickets purchased for our overnight flight to Paris and then, two-weeks later, our flight to Berlin to see Calvin's son for a week. Our euros are on order. Calvin's French is refreshed after two months of daily lessons on Pimsluer CD's. We're getting more anxious by the day.
I have two story ideas I want to research while in Paris. One is a contemporary; the other is an historical set during The Lost Generation. Both, of course, will be romances. I'll be snapping pictures of the area like mad so I can study them for details when I'm working on the novels.
Mona Lisa's Room won the HOLT Medallion Award of Merit in two categories: Best Romantic Suspense and Best Book by a Virginia author.
What stories will my second trip to Paris spawn? I can hardly wait to find out. They might just be as "hawt" as our hot August nights.
