Read full description of the books:
Following a lifetime of trekking across the globe, Vivian Swift, a freelance designer who racked up 23 temporary addresses in 20 years, finally dropped her well-worn futon mattress and rucksack in a small town on the edge of the Long Island Sound. She spent the next decade quietly taking stock of her life, her immediate surroundings, and, finally, what it means to call a place a home.
The result is When Wanderers Cease to Roam. Filled with watercolors of beautiful local landscapes, seasonal activities, and small, overlooked pleasures of easy living, each chapter chronicles the perks of remaining at home, including recipes, hobbies, and prized possessions of the small town lifestyle. At once gorgeously rendered and wholly original, this delightful and masterfully observed year of staying put conjures everything from youthful yearnings and romantic travels to lumpy, homemade sweaters and the gradations of March mud.

All my books go very well with a glass of wine, but my blog can be paired with a cup of tea as well as a flute of champagne. Join us every Friday for a watercolor lesson, some behind-the-scenes tales about the publishing business, maybe a voyage to someplace far away, and definitely some crankiness about the way of the world.
I would make a great Boss of Everybody because I have the right job experience: I've been a Faberge expert for Christie's auction house in New York; a hotel maid in Reno (Nevada); the Bio-terrorism Administrator for the Tea Association of the USA; a book store clerk (in a mall!); a receptionist for a Manhattan hedge fund; a Peace Corps Volunteer in Africa; a junior administrator at Cartier; an au pair in Paris; etc. I have never taken a writing class or a single painting lesson.
Just goes to show you that if you speak fluent French and have an extremely very low tolerance for boredom, you are guaranteed a wonderfully meandering career path.
