Bonjour, friends!

I love hearing from readers, so feel free to contact me, and if you'd like me to come and speak to your organization about living and loving with old-fashioned Parisian-inspired charm, developing your own special style or how to find your ooh la la (whether you live in Boston or Brazil), please email me at Jamie@JamieCatCallan.com

I also teach writing workshops and love to speak about how to cultivate a creative life. 

I'm also the creative of The Writers Toolbox from Chronicle Books.

And please, visit my Facebook Page and my Instagram Page.

I'm also the author of Parisian Charm School (from Penguin Random House).

I'm also the author of the best selling lifestyle books, Ooh La La!, Bonjour, Happiness! and French Women Don't Sleep Alone.  I was inspired by my French grandmother to return to France and interview hundreds and hundreds of French women to discover their secrets to joie de vivre, timeless beauty, love, romance, lingerie and ooh la la!

I love all things French and I'm a hopeless romantic.  I met my husband in my Fairfield University creative writing class.  He was my student back then (although we're actually the same age) and now we've been married for twenty years.

Our story appeared in the New York Times Modern Love column.

My husband is a retired scientist and we now live on La Belle Farm in New York's Hudson Valley where he maintains a very big garden, and we make our our own hard apple cider, raspberry and strawberry jam and tend to a very pretty flower garden.  My husband raises chickens and beautiful Narrangansett turkeys. I write and travel and paint pictures of pretty French girls and always share the joie de vivre.  
Merci beaucoup,

"We can’t all live in Paris, but Jamie Cat Callan has shown us in her effervescent new book how to bring a little Paris into our own lives. Enchanting, wise, full of esprit—and delectable as a Ladurée macaron."
 --Karen Karbo, author of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel

“This charming foray into French femininity will make a perfect cadeau for any Francophile lady.” – Publishers Weekly
