About

Fiona Valpy spent seven years living in France, having moved there from the UK in 2007.

She renovated an old, rambling farmhouse, developing new-found skills in cement-mixing, interior decorating and wine-tasting.

All of these inspirations, along with a love for the place and the people, found their way into the books she wrote there. They have also been translated into German, Norwegian, Czech and Turkish.
