Hello! – Bonjour ! – ¡Hola! – Salve! – Kalimera! – Assalam o-aleikum!
I have worked entirely freelance since 1999, live wherever I want, and travel as often as possible. Now I’ve settled in Guadeloupe, but I’ve also lived in the south of France, Costa Rica, and Morocco.
At Lawless French, I am continuing what I started 15 years ago at About.com: virtually teaching French to independent study students. While I don’t actually hold classes, I write lessons for students who are studying on their own, or need some additional help with something they learned in class. Believe it or not, my French site is a full-time job, and I love every minute of it. (The hardest part is trying to explain my job to people – I usually say I’m a writer or a webmaster, but neither of those is really accurate, and "virtual teacher" requires a lot of explanation.)
My Spanish, English, and vegetarianism sites get less time, but I still spend hours every week adding new content and responding to questions on social media.
I speak fluent French, conversational Spanish, a bit of Italian, a handful of Greek phrases, and a smattering of Moroccan Arabic. In addition to language and vegetarian cooking, I’m also interested in travel, film, computers, swimming, dance, yoga, chick lit, funny sci-fi, and art. I collect silver jewelry, particularly with a people motif, and anything purple.
If you’re a fan of my work and want to make a contribution, I’m always in need of a few good books – check out my wish list.
