What made you write your book?
My constant search for authentic experiences while visiting a country - smells, tastes, art, culture, locals, attitudes, you name it. Being bombarded with information on a daily basis, it is very difficult to sift through all this and make the best choices for a visit, if time is an issue. Writing a book allowed me to share my love of Nice and its culture and provide tips for enjoying the authenticity of the place.
What do you read for pleasure?
I have books for every mood: mysteries for when I am feeling low, classical literature for when I need some substance and non-fiction of all sorts (art, history, fashion, interior decorating, cooking, etc.) for my mind.
Nice on the Run is a personal and lively introduction to Nice for those who don’t have the time to research the place but would like to enjoy every moment of being there. It is short, concise and richly illustrated. It provides you with a feel of the city, the taste of the city and the experience of the city from the point of view of an expat in love with the city.
