This is the Rochebrune Castle, in Cantal France. This is a medieval strong castle restored in the seventies. I woke up early to shoot it in the morning light. I love the way it seems lost in the forest, impregnable. I gave this photo to the kind family that takes care of the castle and gave me a nice visit, they where so excited to know a photograph was interested in their castle.

Sealed with a Kiss

Published Oct 31, 2019 · 2,242 words (9 minutes) · 1 like · 134 views

Mystery Police procedural

“Sealed with a Kiss,” a little police procedural that was originally written for an anthology sponsored by a Canadian regional magazine. The story was accepted but the anthology never appeared, because the town in which the editor was based, Fort McMurray, was partly destroyed by a forest fire, which disrupted a lot of people’s plans. I’ve sent it here and there, but haven’t been able to place it, so I’ve decided to put it up on Curious Fictions as a free read.
