Like all writers, I fear the judgement, the mistakes that may show up in it and of course the fact that I have put a part of myself out there. One of the things we learn growing up is that the less we expose ourselves, the less chance there is of facing criticism. But if I want to write, then I have to be brave enough to publish it. I know writing is like everything else, it takes practice.
I chose this beautiful photograph for the cover because it says so much about a woman, feminine, strong, beautiful and mysterious. It was taken by Gaspard-Félix Tournachon, who was born in 1820, in Paris, France. Under the name Nadar, he sold caricatures to humor magazines, then opened a photographic portrait studio. Nadar's portraits were a hit and he began to innovate, building a giant balloon named Le Géant ("The Giant"), powered by gas, to take the world's first aerial photograph. He took it upon himself to change the face of portrait photography with his unorthodox approach to the medium, effectively becoming the most famous celebrity photographer of the 19th century.
