I am a writer/professor, and my husband is a writer/consultant. I have received a year's paid sabbatical and we are planning on spending a year in UK and Europe writing my second novel and collection of short stories. We live in a small mountain community in south-central British Columbia. The skiing, mountain biking, and road riding is world class. Our daughter is in her second year BFA program in theatre at University of Victoria and will be joining us somewhere in Europe for Christmas. We'd love to learn a second language and find a community we feel comfortable enough to stay for awhile and write. Both Terry and I need to be physically active but we also have a strong affiliation with the arts.
