My name is Miss Footloose (aka Karen van der Zee)
I'm an expatriate writer not living in Paradise (like Peter Mayle or Frances Mayes). I'm not remodeling an old farm house and do not drink wine from my own grapes. I have, however, seen my Palestinian butcher's bedroom, dined on fertility sausage in Kenya, and almost landed in jail in Uganda.
