France is a beacon for holiday-minded travelers all around the globe. As we wait for travel restrictions to subside and the world to open once more, what better way to pass the time than with a book about traveling in France?

Enter “The Road to Villa Page”. Written by the husband and wife team of Cynthia and William James Royce, it takes readers along on their journey to Southwestern France. Each chapter is humorously sectioned into two parts: her story, and his story.

Cynthia Royce (or, Cynthia Deming) was the Executive Creative Consultant on “In Heat of the Night”. In time, Cynthia left the show and went on to write for “Murder, She Wrote”, “Diagnosis: Murder”, and “Colombo”. She’s had photography exhibits in the United States and France, and in 2021 will be publishing her photography book “Souvenirs of the Dordogne”.

William J. Royce is an award-winning author who has written for both stage and screen. His first play as Writer/Director was “A Fine Romance”, a romantic comedy which premiered at the Actor's Playhouse in Los Angeles. His new play, “Everything Happens for a Reason”, won the 2020 Audience Award at New York’s Cornerstone Theatre.
