A Separate Heaven


Occasionally one takes a photograph that can have a wide ranging effect

Sailing off the Italian coast  I took this photograph which has had a profound effect on an author in the USA

Alex Disanti is the author and lives in the Hill Country of Texas and she contacted me regarding the use of the photograph to illustrate a novel she was writing. The photograph she felt epitomised the title of the book and the fact that it was taken off the Italian Coast from a yacht called Heavenly Daze sealed its fate.  It is to be used as the front cover of the forthcoming book, it features prominently on the associated web site and has become identified with the forthcoming series.


A Separate Heaven - A novel by Alex Disanti, the first in a series of seven books spanning  the lives of the Gianelli and Hamilton families.

The details of the author, the book and the photograph are shown on
