In my writography I make many references—written and photographically—to my novel, Intertwined Love, partly because I am so immersed in completing the first draft, and partly because, over a period of 10 years, it’s become a part of who I am.

I use real names in the novel. One character is French emigre Louis Des Isles, my 7th generation back ancestor. I visited Lamoine Beach, Maine (one of themajor settings in my novel) with other Des Isles descendants:

I will use this page to update you on my progress (over the next 10 years???) and on specific posts related to the novel.

Posting this page makes me accountable to you, my readers, on my progress, making it less likely I will give up on the work. Thank you for your support.
