About the CWW Chȃteau de Verderonne Yoga & Writing Retreat, Ruotolo writes, “Attending a CWW writer’s retreat in France in 2014 was a life-changing experience for me. I met wonderful people from all over the world and was able to immerse myself in my writing, finding my inner calm, voice and enjoying the beauty of another country. I made life-long friendships and it was where the idea for my new book came from.”
