Riviera Dreaming: The Story of an American Architect on the Côte d'Azur.

My new book is on the story of the American architect Barry Dierks, his partner Eric Sawyer, and the stunning houses they built on the architecture of the French Riviera in the 1920s and 1930s - for those interesting clients who could afford them. The book is now with a publisher and will be released in hardback in 2018.
