Welcome to my website

New release!


In time for Christmas, my collection of short stories inspired by and set in France, French Collection: Twelve Short Stories is now available in Kindle e-book and paperback formats from Amazon.

Tweet a photo of the book cover in a French-inspired location (it doesn’t have to be in France!) and I’ll publish it here on my website. Include my Twitter handle @Vanessainfrance and the hashtag #FrenchCollectionShortStories in your tweet.
