After a childhood and young adulthood based in Hong Kong, husband Victor and I moved to the UK in 1981. We had a son, Paul, who now lives in London. Over the years, although we visited our old home regularly, we also laid down roots in a new one. In 1962, my parents discovered the Italian hillside town of Asolo and bought an old farmhouse nearby. This became a favourite holiday destination and Victor and I have been living here since September 2012.
Asolo is situated in the Veneto Region of Northern Italy, about an hour’s drive from Venice. I blog about my life here and the background to my writing.
