This week I have been looking through the library of images that I have collected and that keeps on growing as I write. These are pictures that inspire my novels, of the places that stir my muse. Today I would like to share with you some of my favourite views from the books I have written. I hope they will transport you to destinations full of history, legend, culture and most of all beauty, and if you’d like to experience more of these places… well, my novels are a good place to start!
