If anyone tells you that Leonard Cohen is....

depressing - then they are wrong, wrong WRONG!

The man is a Sex-God.
Who moves with sinous grace.
A dynamo.
A poet.
Aged 74 (yes, really)
(Hope for us all....)
And here I am pictured at his recent concert at Brooklands, Weybridge.
Did it rain?  Incessantly.
Did anyone care?  I honestly don't think anyone noticed.

downloading pictures from site-to-site - which feels a bit like learning to ride a bike, only without any bruises or grazes to the knees.  Thank heavens for the helpful men in the Mac computer store in Southampton (my new favourite destination).  

Below you'll see the English cover for CONSTANTINE'S DEFIANT MISTRESS, which was published in the UK in June, 09 and is to be released in the US in October, 09.  I'm rather pleased with the heroine's dress which is exactly as I imagined it to be.

The story is about the Constantine Karantinos and Laura, the woman whose life he once sailed into - and just as quickly sailed out of again.   He's outrageously masterful and utterly confident - the kind of man who makes your skin sizzle just by looking at you.  In fact, the best way I can describe the indomitable shipping tycoon is through the Laura's eyes:

He towered over all the other men like a colossus - making everyone else fade into insignificance.  The day she had first met set eyes on him would be imprinted on her mind for ever; he had looked like a Greek god - his powerful body silhouetted against the dying sun, his dark and golden beauty suggesting both vigour and danger....

Blooming tree in sweet DC

Oddly enough, it wasn't the mighty museums which captured my imagination during a recent trip to America's capital city.  Nor was Georgetown, the statuesque cathedral or iconic Mall.

It was the trees.  Beautiful, flowering shapes which lined the streets and studded them with colour.  Or color (as they say over there).
