Location Mieussy, Haute-Savoie, France
Introduction On the plus side, I have a wonderful partner and two wonderful children who make me proud. I liked living in Switzerland but have now moved to beautiful Haute-Savoie. In any event, I'm glad to be out of Ireland. And soon, in my small way, I'll be a published novelist. On the downside, I still regret the failure of my marriage of more than 20 years.
