Overview

A fun novella. Set in Paris. Yes, a romance ;-)

A young couple with a little time before their two children and the children's four young cousins all arrive to join them in Paris (Parts Two & Three).

A 5 1/2 week personal stay in Paris recently, added to a life long love affair with the City of Light, helped provide much of the inspiration for this first of three related Paris works.

This is a continuing extended family sage covering characters in ages nine to over sixty. It is stand alone, yet creates an arc with the previous work, "The Children" and "Four Shorts, Prequel to 'The Children'".

Two further books that relate to the family are "The Old American Artist" and "Rosetta." They are character stand alone books, which add background on the oldest members of the family.

Parts Two and Three of "Slumming in Paris" are expected to be finished this year. Future work envisioned in the arc of the family's story, include "Lounging in Austin" and another stand alone character work, "Macario." The latter is a major character in the novel, "The Children."

Thank you so much for considering my work. I also have poetry and image ebook listings.

Meet the Author

I have been writing and creating pictures since high school in the sixties, and began writing more seriously in the late 70s and early 80s.

One of my more recent surprises has been to read a definition of Romance that seems to generally fit the majority of both my poetry and fiction: a central story involving the relationship of two people, and a generally optimistic and satisfying ending.

With that revelation, I now view Romance fiction in a whole new light. ;-)

But if I had to give one word about most of my fiction and poetry, and even my images, it's relationships.

The interactions of people, especially couples and among family, seem to have the strongest hold on me. That would also help explain why even in my poetry about teachers and nurses and others, it is the relationship aspect that usually is my focus.

Below, is more general information about myself. I hope you can take advantage of the half dozen or so titles I offer free for downloads, and will also consider and enjoy my other work. Thanks so much!

Sincerely,

Felipe Adan Lerma
