Writers like solitude. I look for my solitude in big cities. Different ones every year.
I am American, but I live in France and Buenos Aires. But when I house swap I try to find something in northern California. I have been a college professor, a fashion model, a journalist, an interpreter, a novelist, a fireworks salesperson, director of a Parisian Couture boutique, an elevator operator, a shoe salesperson, a single mother and a simultaneous translator. Best thing I ever did was write books.
I have mostly lived in Paris my whole adult life. In 1971, my first article appeared in US Cosmopolitan Then, in 1973, I wrote a novel called Ladyfingers. It was published by a major New York publisher. I was actually going to be able to earn a living as "a writer". I longed to go on writing stories, but my literary agent decided I should write non fiction. "What is non fiction?" I asked. "I just want to write stories."
She said, "Novels are risky. They might sell. They might not. If you only write novels, your children will starve."
She gave me a choice between Cooking and Astrology. Julia Child I was not. I agreed to write an astrology book. But on one condition... I would write about Chinese Astrology - the animal signs. In 1975 I published my first Chinese Astrology book. It was a huge hit. Since, I have written four best-selling books about Astrology. My readers have dubbed me "The High Priestess". Makes me giggle.
BALD IN THE MERDE originally appeared (abridged) as a feature article in The New York Times Sunday Magazine of May 2, 2010
I love Facebook and Twitter where I can actually talk to readers one on one. I sell all my books as e-bboks on Kindle, Nook, Smashwords and Amazon.
