The magical colours of Tuscany

So many soothing and enchanting vistas

Tuscany features prominently in the second half of my novel, The Way Things Fall. It’s where the character, Steven, goes to heal some old wounds and discover his true talent as a painter.

This photo is San Gimignano, one of the many magical little towns in Tuscany and the inspiration for the view Steven has from the ridge near his home when he walks each morning to greet the sunrise. Throughout Tuscany you can’t help but be entranced by the colours – the lilac sky, the terracotta buildings, the stately Cypress trees, the vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see.

If you have never been, it’s definitely one for the bucket list.
