A funny memoir about life in Paris
#1 Amazon Best Selling Author
From champagne bottles to baby bottles, this memoirette offers a humorous look at an American mom's decade in Paris.
Party Girl Vicki moved to Paris hoping to drink her fill of wine and fall in love. She accomplished her goal, but encountered many bumps along the way: romantic encounters gone awry, absurd French bureaucracy threatening her sanity, and two adorable but impossibly energetic kids keeping her on her toes. This memoirette takes you on a journey of the ups and downs of Vicki's 10 years in the City of Light.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to open another bottle of wine.
Also: Read about Vicki's crazy Paris debut in Confessions of a Paris Party Girl and her bumpy journey into motherhood and French parenting in her #1 Amazon Best Seller, Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer.
The collection of humorous essays shows the funny side of life, love, and raising a family in Paris.
Interview with the Author
Q. What was your inspiration to write the Confessions series?
A. After a few too many drinks at the bar, I either turn to storytelling or karaoke. I'm much better at storytelling—or so my friends say! They encouraged me to put my tales to paper, and thus was born my series of memoirs.
Q. OK, so they're technically memoirs. But they seem different than traditional memoirs. How would you categorize them?
A. Most of the best selling memoirs are written by celebrities, who already have a huge audience. I had to choose a different angle in order to stand out, so I went for humor. I hope people find my memoirs funny, similar to a fun chick lit novel. I also talk about my travels, so my books would appeal to anyone who likes travel memoirs. Confessions of a Paris Party Girl could be categorized as relationship humor or wedding humor, while Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer would fall into the parenting humor or pregnancy humor categories.
Q. Yikes... Those are practically spoilers!
A. Sorry! Between my French last name and my author bio, I think the cat might already be out of the bag. However, even if you have a rough idea of how it all ends up, you have no idea how rough it was getting there until you read my books!
Q. Aren't there already so many memoirs, and ones about Paris in particular? Why should I choose yours?
A. It's true, there are some really great Paris memoirs out there. The fact that I have read (and enjoyed!) so many best selling memoirs myself makes me think it's a popular genre for a reason. We're always thirsty for another sip of Paris, right? To travel to Paris through the pages of a book... to fall in love with Paris again!
Q. What order should I read the books in?
A. Each book in the Confessions series can stand alone, but like fine wine and pungent cheese, they go great together! I would recommend the following order:
- Petite Confessions: A Humorous Memoirette
- Confessions of a Paris Party Girl: A Humorous Travel Memoir
- Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer: A Humorous Parenting Memoir
If you enjoy fun, light reads with an inside look of what it's really like to live in France, you'll enjoy the Confessions series. Thanks for reading!
