Heather Webb Very cool, Cindy! I totally forgot about that interview. I need to get a copy. Thank you. :) I'm glad you're enjoying it. I hope all is well with you?

Cindy Richard Hi Heather,

I am in the middle of RODIN'S LOVER, and loving it! I came across your article about the book in France Magazine by accident - I was pining over the pictures of France, when I saw the article about Victor Hugo and then your article. Very nice - I was thrilled at this bit of serendipity!

Cindy
