About

Bonjour, mes amis!

I'm the author of Ooh La La!, (just released!)  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're married.  Our story appeared in the New York Times Modern Love column.
We now live on Cape Cod where he works as a climate change scientist and I write and travel and take lots of photographs and share the joie de vivre.  

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 like a French woman, 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

And please, visit my Facebook Page where I share lots of French secrets and pretty photos!

Merci beaucoup,
Jamie
