Bahareh asked Frances Mayes:

Really enjoyed your Tuscany books that took me away and transported me to Italy! Thank you! Do you find it more inspiring to write when you are secluded in your beautiful garden in Tuscany or would you rather be inspired by people in big cities with different life styles?

Frances Mayes I am such an erratic writer that I don't have many set patterns. If the mood is on me, I can write in a car, even while driving, or on a plane. I've never had the fortitude for a regular pattern but I do find the long days in Tuscany often lead me to my desk.
