Rialto Market Venice

Rialto Market Venice

When I think of the word ‘FRESH’ I can’t help thinking of food! And in my travels I have been so taken with people’s passion for fresh food. In South Africa, we have large refrigerators and deep-freezers and we shop once a week in a supermarket. Boring! In smaller towns there is always a Saturday Farmer’s market, and things are changing in the cities as folk become more aware of the health benefits of organic food.
Travelling in Europe and England is an eye-opener and I love to visit the street markets in Paris. We were delighted with the wonderful markets in La Rochelle.In Venice they have the marvelous Rialto Market, which is largely supplied from a ‘market garden’ island called St. Erasmus an island about the size of the main island of Venice Europeans still buy their food daily at the wonderful street markets available to them, and are passionate about ‘FRESH’.

My first book is about to be published as a e-Book.

After 8 years of writing a novel I am finally going to publish it as an eBook. I decided to take the plunge and JUST DO IT! It is called Every Hidden Thing and I have just sent it to be formatted. When I get it back I intend to publish via the Smashwords platform.
