I am a guest on Alison Morton’s writing blog today, talking about how living in France inspires and affects my writing.
‘I fell in love with the pace of village life, which gives me focus to write.’
‘My writing is inspired by material culture—objects in museums, archaeology, illustrated manuscripts—and by sensory experiences of places.’
Read the blog for more on rambling vines, how I came to live in France and how the experience turned me into a novelist writing about early medieval Europe. I also refer to my site research in France, including a trip to Lusignan to find out about Melusine (pictured above).
