Ellen Rugen


Very much enjoying a rural French retirement amongst cats,chickens and pumpkins. It's been a hectic life, with different relationships and work including academia, teaching, family therapy, single parenthood and spiritual experiences in India. I value silence, intelligence and authentic meetings. Although feminism is now inbred, I do little to change the world except write.

Hoping not to retire at 60, Ellen buys a house in France with views of the Pyrenees. Living on a shoestring, she describes the day to day dilemmas of life as a second homer, with an aged cat. A picture is painted where spin is not yet King and traditional values linger on in a community close to the earth beneath vibrant skies. An entertaining guide for anyone who shares a similar dream.
