The Chateau of Chantilly … great place to visit …

A visit to the Chantilly chateau in the town of Chantilly is a most delightful outing. You can of course stay over in one of the town’s hotels (I’ve not, so I cannot recommend any), but a day trip is as good. The Chantilly chateau has a permanent collection of artworks – paintings, furniture and […]

Free books in Paris … Yes, books are being given away in Paris … !

Electronic books and sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble have made publishing books easy. Or should I say easier especially as one can now publish one’s scribblings oneself.

Then, I began to report crime which led to me writing a book about France’s WW2 serial killer, Dr Marcel Petiot. This book – […]

FOR SOME PUTIN IS THE NEW STALIN …

  Putin is another Stalin. This is if we listen to people like Obama, Hollande, Mrs Merkel and Cameron. A scholar of Communism and Stalinism, I wrote the novel FOR THE LOVE OF A POET (photo above)  about the persecution in the 1930s of the Russian intelligentsia, in other words in the years of Stalin.
