Ah, I love Paris!!
 
So much so I just finished my second WW2 Paris novel… more coming up soon including a cover! 
 
But first… about that memory…
 
My heroine Sylvie Martone loved staying in Marly-le-Roi outside Paris with the man in her life…
 
Here is a memory of mine when I stayed there… yes, that’s me in that wild purple dress.
 
The Resistance Girl Paris 1943
Could a moment of courage change her life?
 
It’s the story of French cinema star Sylvie Martone and her amazing journey from 1920s-1940s and how she defied the Gestapo to save lives…

I discovered early on that I inherited the gift of the gab from my large Irish family when I penned a story about a princess who ran away to Paris with her pet turtle Lulu. I was twelve. I grew up listening to their wild, outlandish tales and it was those early years of storytelling that led to my love of history and traveling. I enjoy writing to classical music with a hot cup of java by my side. I adore dark chocolate truffles, vintage anything, the smell of bread baking and rainy days in museums. I’ve always loved walking through history—from Pompeii to Verdun to Old Paris. The voices of the past speak to me through carriages with cracked leather seats, stiff ivory-colored crinolines, and worn satin slippers. I’ve always wondered what it was like to walk in those slippers when they were new.

    Hi Jina, Thank you for sharing those rich memories and providing the videos. Your new book sounds awesome. I still love and remember your novel Christmas Once Again. It also made me a fan of wearing Victory Red lipstick.
