So far, all published Kindred Spirits tales have been set in the UK, hopping between England and Scotland only. However, there is one out in the world which is set in Paris, and you can get hold of that free, when you subscribe to my newsletter, which I’ll be reviving later this year. Now, I cannot go giving too much away, but I’ve visited one of Paris’ most famous graveyards a couple of times over the years, and actually enjoyed wandering around the peace and calm of Pere Lachaise, seeing the various eras of tombs represented. Spotting a cat helped too!
But there are plenty of other opportunities to hop overseas with the Kindred Spirits series too. Personally, I’ve been in love with Paris since I was a child, and there are so many people and places to explore (Versailles would be divine). Last September though, I headed to Rome for a week, and boy – all that history… I know there are Romans in York, but just imagine how many there would be in their home city itself? Not to mention the great families through the ages. I wrote about having visited the Farnese at both their city and country residences; given that their city home is now in the middle of the tourist-laden Forum, I wonder how they would feel about that? How do any of ‘my’ ghosts feel about it, to be honest? It isn’t something I’ve explored too much, but there’s plenty of scope.
In truth, as I’ve said before, whenever I visit anywhere new now, I’m immediately wondering who might be loitering around the corner, so why not spread that further afield?
In the meantime though, hope you enjoy the free book if you sign up to my newsletter!
If it was your house being trampled over by tourists, how would you feel?
