Last word

Finally, a couple of lesser-known facts about me…

When I’m not travelling and writing to earn my crust, I spend time cooking for my family and friends at my olive farm in Southern France and writing poetry, to which end I am invited annually to Yale University’s literary conference.

In my twenties, I spent several years as a travel PR director. As well as increasing account wins by 400% in six months for one agency and working with clients around the globe from London to Sydney and Los Angeles, I volunteered for Coral Cay Conservation overseeing their first-ever celebrity charity event. Since those days, I lecture on marketing from time to time as an adjunct university professor in Brussels.
