A Novel Valentine

Sincere thanks to the stunning team at Hills of Africa Travel in the USA, for requesting an interview about my novel for their blog. This has been the catalyst for creating the website www.outofair.com – artwork by my gifted stepson:

The article will take the form of a two-post series, the first on Monday 14 February, which is Valentine’s Day. That also happens to be the day the story begins.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hope you all have a delightful day 🙂

We began our celebrations early, with a magic ski trip to Switzerland, where we spent 10 days staying with our special cousins Karen and Hérve and their family, in their stunning chalet at Chandolin. This is a tiny village, high in the Alps, about 3 hours’ drive from Geneva, along a lovely route that passes right beside the lake and into the mountains.

The chalet is named ‘Mang èn la Mang’, which means “Hand in Hand’ in the local dialect. It’s too gorgeous for words:

Here’s a pic of the approach into the village:

And us in the snow:
