I started writing my life in France blog, Life on La Lune, in February 2010. I thought I might do it for a couple of years, but it has become a big part of my life. There’s always something new to find out and write about. I’ve made so many friends through the blog, and it’s been lovely to meet some of them in person.
My husband and I moved to an 18th-century farmhouse in Midi-Pyrénées (now part of Occitanie) in 1997. A lot of vin has flowed under the bridge since then, but it was the right move for us.
I’m a refugee from corporate life. Following a first degree in History, I worked in publishing for 10 years. An MBA followed and a change of career in public sector research. I finally decided there was more to life than the four walls of an office.
Once we had moved here, I ran my own business writing for clients for 20 years, and also contributed to magazines about French life. I now focus on writing novels and short stories set in Southwest France or on the French island of Corsica.
When I’m not doing any of those things I like food and wine, yoga and walking, music and singing, gardening, and researching the fascinating history of the area where I live and of the people who once lived in our house.
