In 2015 I published my first book, My Stylish French Girlfriends sharing the lives of twenty french women.   During my 2016 book tour in the US, I began speaking at book stores and garden clubs and discovered that I adore sharing my experiences with others.  I talk about personal reinvention and also about  flowers and gardens, because they are the subjects that I know best.

Among my favourite themes on the blog is that of reinvention.  An idea I know well.   I started the blog because I knew that my children were growing fast and that having been a hands-on mum for twenty years, it was time for me to plan my reinvention.  Eight years later I have a blog that is read all over the world and I published my second book in August 2017.   I love to talk about the courage you need to reinvent yourself ; working out what is the best direction to go and the steps along the way.

My other pet subject on the blog is my garden and flowers.   I love to talk about garden design in France and how I have adapted my own garden to a happy meeting point between my native British culture and my adopted France.   I also love to arrange flowers and am comfortable doing live demonstrations of flower arranging techniques.

If you have an upcoming event and are looking for a keynote speaker, I’d be happy to talk with you possibilities.
