Living History or My New Old Venture

Chilling out on the veranda of the Hotel Villa Cipriani in Asolo. May 2011. Treviso, Italy.

One upon a faraway time, the 1990’s, there was a freelance writer named Hope Tarr. While Hope enjoyed writing articles, her Big Dream was to write books.

In 1999, Hope sold A Rogue’s Pleasure, a sexy Regency-set romp and her first book. From then on, she got busy writing books. Really busy.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Fortunately for all of us, living history can shift and change, twist and turn. On a dime.

While I’m happy to report that I’m still really busy writing books, I’ve also found time to return to a former love: travel writing.

And we’re having us quite a honeymoon. 😉

Please check out my two (and counting) articles on Italy for the fabulous travel site and blog, Europe Up Close. My Eat Pray Love…Florence series will be followed shortly with Eating in Venice and another trio of articles on Day Tripping in The Veneto.

Grazie Mille!

  1. It’s great you have graduated all the way in writing literally more boooks that I will be able to read.You have great writing style, Read up Condo Nest if you have not, the love travel dialogues. Couple of family members have been travelling and hoing on Safari for > 10 years and still doing it, though they do not write as much but it’s a great life. I often wanted to write of my trips bust mostly they were business trips around the world and their just was not enough time to see as much of the country or town or city. I do one day plan to write about a Lunch in a place called Paradise on the border of Switzerland and Germany and dinner that evening in a a dinging room that had no name but when I woke up in my room in Zurich, the painting on the wall was of the balcony of the restaurent without a name. without a name!

  2. Thanks, Angela. The travel writing is energizing me in ways large & small. I have a Venetian set historical trilogy percolating “as we speak.” 🙂

  3. “Lunch in Paradise”–you must write it, Roy. Business trips or not, you’ve covered more of the globe than most people ever will–in multiple life times.

  4. A formidable share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing just a little analysis on this. And he in fact purchased me breakfast as a result of I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! However yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If potential, as you develop into experience, would you mind updating your blog with extra details? It is extremely useful for me. Huge thumb up for this weblog post!
