I've lived in the French countryside in southern Burgundy since 2003 with my husband Ron and our cat, Domino. We were lucky enough to land in the Château de Balleure, the home of our now dear French friends Nicole and Pierre Balvay, where with their help I've been re-learning to cook and cheerfully struggling with the French language. After three happy years in the château, we renovated an old farmhouse nearby, where we live now. Prior to living in France, we made our home in the historic district of Charleston, South Carolina.
In the states, I worked as a regional magazine editor for Meredith Publishing (Better Homes & Gardens and Traditional Home). Since moving to France, I've turned to writing for magazines in both the US and the UK, including Better Homes & Gardens, France Magazine, and Living France. I'm also a contributor at the e-zine The Daily Basics. My recipes have appeared in national newspapers and websites. I'm the author of the book How to Learn a New Language with a Used Brain. And I'm the the keeper of the castle at Southern Fried French.
