More About the Author
I'm American. I live in France. I write books as fast as my fingers can type. I intend to continue to do so, even if I must type with my toes when I have one foot in the grave.
I came to Paris in 1961 and never left. In my checkered French life, I have been a school teacher, a college professor, a fashion model, a journalist, an interpreter, a novelist, a fireworks salesperson, director of a Parisian Couture boutique, an elevator operator, a shoe salesperson, a single mother and a simultaneous translator. Best thing I ever did was write books.
I have lived in Paris my whole adult life. I have two grown daughters who were born in Paris. One lives in Los Angeles. One lives in Paris. Now I live in Provence. It's warmer. Winters, I go to Buenos Aires where it's summer.
By 1970, I had tired of teaching English, fashion modeling and translating subtitles on French porn films to make money to feed us. I'd always dreamed of being a writer. So one day in 1971, I wrote an article for Cosmopolitan magazine in New York. To my delight and surprise, they actually bought and published it. Now I was officially a writer. I remember jumping around the house, hollering "I'm a writer! I'm a writer!" I still did translations to make money to feed the kids.
Then, in 1973, I screwed up my courage and wrote a whole novel. I called that book Ladyfingers. A loving, rich boyfriend took me to New York to find an agent. The agent loved the book and sold it within a week. Yippeee! Ladyfingers was published by a big New York publisher. I looked forward to earning a living being "a writer". I sincerely wanted to go on writing stories. But my sensible agent decided I should write non fiction. I balked at first. But when I did she said, "Novels are risky. They might sell. They might not. If you only write novels, your children will starve."
She gave me a choice between Cooking and Astrology. I chose the latter, providing I could write about Chinese Astrology - the animal signs. By 1975 I had published my first book about Chinese Astrology. By now, I have written four best-selling books about Chinese and western Astrology. My readers have dubbed me "The High Priestess". That is flattering.
I love e-mail and I adore being on Facebook and Twitter where I can actually talk to readers one on one. It's a luxury for an author to be able to communicate directly with the people who read her books. Long Live The Internet! Contact me for personalized readings. Or drop me a line just to say hello. I'm easy to know and I always answer my email. firstname.lastname@example.org.
