Welcome to my website

For people trying to get hold of a copy of The House at Zaronza – apologies, it is currently unavailable pending its reissue in early April with a new cover and editorial changes. If you’d like to receive automatic notification of its release, please follow my author page on Amazon. Thank you for your interest. 

Have a look around…

Vanessa Couchman

I write historical fiction, much of it inspired by and set either in France, where I live, or in Corsica, which I love. If you like what you see, you can get all my books on Amazon. Sometimes they are on promotion, so keep coming back or sign up for my Reader’s Club newsletter, which will give advance warning.

Happy reading!
