He’s taught Arab princes, Brazilian beauty queens and Italian billionaires. He speaks a number of languages and has travelled extensively. He has eaten snake, still-alive fish, and alligator. A Spanish dog, a Russian bug and a Korean parasite have done their best to eat him in return. His hobby is long-distance cycling, but his passion is writing.

The glamour of Hollywood. The magic of the Tuscan countryside. One big decision…
Beatrice Kingdom (Bee to her friends) wakes up in hospital in Tuscany. After an accident on a film set leaves her burned and scarred, she feels her whole life has been turned upside down.
Bee is offered the chance of recuperating in a stunning Tuscan villa in the company of a world-famous film star, the irascible Mimi Robertson. Here amid the vines and olive groves, Bee quickly finds there’s more to the place than meets the eye, not least a certain Luca (and Romeo the dog).
As she comes to terms with her injuries and her new life takes shape, Bee will have to travel a road of self-discovery… and make a huge decision.
A joyous, funny and moving tale, Dreaming of Tuscany is a triumph, perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Tilly Tennant, and Jenny Oliver.
If the drudgery of winter is getting you down and you need an escape, then look no further than ‘Dreaming of Tuscany’. As with all his books, T A Williams transports you to the heart of the location, painting a picture of the scene in the reader’s imagination, introducing them to the sights, tastes and sounds, in this case, of the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
Bee is an endearing character from the outset, although she is in danger of being upstaged throughout by Romeo, the adorable black Labrador who, not only allays her fear of large dogs, but is instrumental in shaping her journey in Italy. Add a potentially temperamental Hollywood star and the prospect of a romantic interest into the mix and you have all the essential elements for a great read!
