Walled Cities

Certaldo, Italy, is my favorite walled city because of its peaceful scale and its position on a lovely hillside.  I spent a day there when my family was living in Ferrara, a larger walled city, for several months.  Standing on ramparts at dusk, with swallows flying against the fading sky like bats, but prettier, takes me through a portal.

On the blog tour today at The Book Monsters, Kristen asks me to say what’s hardest and easiest about writing, and she gets me thinking.

  • That sounds very inspiring!

    This blog tour is evilly spoilery. But wonderful! I like the interview with Will from yesterday.

    I’m really trying not to give away anything that matters! So glad you liked Will’s interview. He is not the sort to relish an interview, so it was tricky to work with him.
    All best,
