Every step I take in this country has been a great help in bringing me closer to finishing my book. In Rome and Naples, through the ruins and churches and streets and people, I have found inspiration to pick up the pen once again. But my next step onto the streets of Pompeii is without doubt the most important of all.
I have planned to stay in Pompei (the new city) for 2 days for research purposes. I will be visiting the ruins of Pompeii during this time. From there I am renting a room in Salerno, a city on the Amalfi Coast about 30 minutes from Pompeii by train or bus, for 2 weeks where I will write, returning to the site as needed.
