Author Liza Perrat

Today I’m delighted to welcome an author who also lives in France, but on the other side near Lyon. Liza Perrat and I know each other only virtually, but somehow I feel I  know her better than that already! She is the author of two terrific historical novels set in France. I eagerly await the third in the trilogy, which is due out this summer. Liza tells us more about them below.

A Reminder about the @Writersabroad Anthology 2015

Just a little reminder. If you are, or have been at any time, an ex-pat (i.e. living away from your country of origin), and on top of that you are a writer…you still have more than three weeks to submit a short story or a poem for the Writers Abroad Anthology 2015.

My guest today is a man who moves seamlessly between a career as an international businessman and that of a successful author. He’s also generous with his time and promotes other authors unstintingly. He’s the kind of person who’d be an asset as a guest at any party. Just read his blog: you’ll see what I mean.
