When I moved to Piemonte I had aspirations but soon realised it wasn’t just about learning how to listen to the trees. A story began to unfold…

I had moved so many times and met so many interesting people. But for the first time I wasn’t keen on meeting more friends, instead I was consumed with the land, about learning how to become self-sufficient. I was focused on finishing my book detailing the odyssey taken to get here; and yet the people began to loom larger than my aspirations.

Like all tribes, the Piemontese carry their own qualities. After 7 years it became increasingly clear another story needed to be told. But it was their story, so only they could relay it. Once the interviews began I knew this next book would have to be told in English and Italian. It would not be easy. But it’s coming together nicely. 12 interviews with 12 Piemontese – stay tuned…
