About Doreen Porter

After a career in journalism in both the public and private sectors, I moved to SW France in 2007 with my husband and two cats. I wrote the A to Z of Life in France as an appreciation of all that is good (and sometimes not so good) in our new home.

Review by: Carol E Wyer on Nov. 12, 2011 :
Ever wondered what the French call 'Hogwarts'? Would you like to learn about the secret life that goes on in car parks over there? Or, maybe you'd just like to discover what on earth a coypu is.
If you want to know the answer to these and many more fascinating questions and French peculiarities including the French fascination for illuminated salt and pepper pots, then Doreen Porter's book is an absolute must-read for you.
It is a light-hearted look at life as an ex-Pat in France. Doreen Porter makes wry observations combining them with anecdotes that will make you chuckle.
This is an essential read for anyone who intends moving to France or just fancies knowing a little about life there.
