I’m Tony Rocca, and here ‘s my favourite photo of Mira, my life-support system. We’ve been partners in life, love and work for as long as we can remember, and now live in the South of France after an extensive period making wine in Tuscany. I know that’s a big jump from Baghdad, but believe me!
Mira, born in Baghdad, spent her early years in India and then grew up in Palestine/Israel and Cyprus before coming to England. In London she had a varied career, working for the US Embassy, Club Mediterrannée, and Thomson Holidays, eventually starting her own successful travel agency.
I was born near Manchester (UK) and spent most of my life working for British newspapers. I wrote for the Daily Mail for 10 years and then another 10 for The Sunday Times before drifting into the freelance wilderness — and then the vineyards.
