It is a bit like a child waiting for Christmas. Already I have had so much interest and wonderful responses to the struggling, passionate love of the young Claude Monet and his enchanting but difficult muse Camille! And somehow I am writing intensely on my new novel, also a love story. I find the complex emotions of committed love so fascinating between any two people, men and woman or same sex. It is something almost all of us need and want, and yet it is never as entirely easy as one thinks at first once the complexities of real life come in the form of money, family, children and etc.
