If it’s Friday, it must be France …
Recently, I’ve been spending my days in the intriguing Camargue region of the south of France … well, on paper anyway … working away on my new novel and heading toward the January 15th deadline when it is due on my Lake Union editor’s desk.
It was a thrill to spend some time in this Rhône River delta in June doing research for my story. This description might not fit your classic image of France: you’ll find gardiens, what we might call cowboys, on white horses that run wild in the salty marshland when not being put to work herding the famous black bulls; ancient villages where gypsies gather each year to keep alive legends of old; salt flats teeming with pink flamingos and other bird life. The region is part of UNESCO’s network of world biosphere reserves.
Here are a few photos from the Camargue and an excellent article to give you more information. Please be sure to scroll to the bottom and watch the video.
With your permission, I’ll save my words for my novel (for now) and get back to writing! I hope this little peek at the Camargue will make you eager to read the new story when it is published … looks like late 2017 at the moment! Bon weekend!
