But that’s just in the real world… Enter Stories Under Paris to discover the untold tales that dwell beneath the surface of Paris – one story for every Métro Station.

February 10, 2017

Welcome to February!  I hope you’ve survived January OK, whether your weather has been unpleasantly hot, unpleasantly cold, or unpleasantly political.  It’s very hot here at the moment, which might be why today’s story wound up being set in a desert.

Speaking of deserts, I’m afraid things might be a little dry around here for the next six weeks or so – I’ve just entered the busiest time of the year at work, and will have relatively little time available for writing, so stories are likely to be a bit more sporadic for the next little while.  Hopefully I’ll be able to resume the normal schedule in late March.
