"My roots are buried deep in a small farming community in Southern Africa, but since then I've moved around the world, having lived in Cape Town, New York City, Nairobi, Luanda, Windhoek, Beverley Hills, London, Brussels; with further education in the United States, South Africa, England, and mainland Europe.
Working from one of my two bases - one in a quiet hamlet in England and the other in an ancient Italian mountain village, I need look no further than my cobbled street for inspiration. At both locations, just beyond my front door are handsome churches that have been adding a touch of nobility and grandeur to the landscape for centuries. Both are treasured by a few aging parishioners, and one opinionated writer."
