Glass Half Full: Our Australian Adventure Find out what it takes to keep the Glass Half Full, as challenging life events including grief, loss, PTSD and devastating floods, test this expat step-family to their limits. After enduring divorce and numerous child custody battles, Sarah Jane knew that a fresh start in Australia was their only chance of future happiness and that as a family they were making the right decisions. Living the Australian dream in Alice Springs was everything they hoped for until life-changing events started to test the foundations of this resilient family. Using every ounce of positivity they could muster they struggled on and just as they thought the worst was over Mother Nature intervened and washed away the roots to their new life during the Brisbane floods of 2011. This story lets you experience Australian life with an inspirational woman and her courageous family, as they struggle to survive challenging life events and keep their dreams alive. Life is never without its challenges, but how many life-changing events can one family endure before they reach breaking point? Find out in this heart wrenching and touching true story. Two Dogs and a Suitcase: Clueless in Charente Follows the French exploits of Sarah Jane and her family as they endeavour to rebuild their lives in another new country, after spending four and half years in Australia. The title says it all: literally what they have and where they are, but that's only part of the story. Their goal was to focus positively on the present and to start a new, optimistic chapter back in Europe nearer to the children, leaving the dark clouds of the challenges they faced in Australia as a distant memory. Share their experiences as they arrive in rural South West France portrayed through Sarah Jane’s reflections, thoughts and observations about her family and their new French lifestyle. Follow Sarah Jane’s tentative steps into a writing career as they start renovating a rustic cottage while managing the ups and downs of family life. Once again, Sarah Jane will make you laugh and cry as she endeavours to live life to the fullest with a generous helping of positive spin thrown in for good measure. Our Frugal Summer in Charente: An Expat’s Kitchen Garden Journal Meet Sarah Jane, a woman with a reputation for culinary catastrophe who tries to keep her family fed in challenging circumstances in rural France. Frugal living was not part of the plan when they arrived from Australia to undertake the renovation of a quaint cottage in the Charente. However, when life throws them a curve-ball the challenge was set. How would they survive in France with very little money and two Australian cattle dogs. The answer came in the form of 5 chickens, 4 ducks, a vegetable garden and hedgerow foraging! The frugal plan was to save money by any means possible, to enable any money they could earn to be invested into continuing the renovation of the cottage. In true ‘Good Life’ style Sarah Jane attacks this challenge head on by keeping some small livestock and converting a garden, that resembled a meadow, into a French ‘potager’ or kitchen garden.The French tradition of using produce from their ‘potagers’ is renowned for enabling families to create meals that are healthy, cost effective and simple. There are 31 recipes for a variety of food and drinks, included in a month by month account, of how they transformed a neglected garden into a frugal yet productive expat kitchen garden.

If you've ever been told that "You should really write a book" and you've decided to give it a try, this book is for you. It hones in on the three key measures necessary for aspiring authors to conceptualize, sell, and market their memoirs. Written especially for those who don't happen to be celebrities You Should Really Write a Book reveals why and how so many relatively unknown memoirists are making a name for themselves. With references to more than four hundred books and six memoir categories, this is essential reading for anyone wanting to write a commercially viable memoir in today's vastly changing publishing industry. The days are long gone when editors and agents were willing to take on a manuscript simply because it was based on a "good" idea or even because it was well written. With eyes focused on the bottom line, they now look for skilled and creative authors with an established audience, too. Brooks and Richardson use the latest social networking, marketing, and promotional trends and explain how to conceptualize and strategize campaigns that cause buzz, dramatically fueling word-of-mouth and attracting attention in the publishing world and beyond. Full of current examples and in-depth analysis, this guide explains what sells and why, teaches writers to think like publishers, and offers guidance on dealing with complicated emotions—essential tools for maximizing memoir success.

For centuries writers have used participatory experience as a lens through which to better see the world at large and as a means of exploring the self. Considering various types of participatory writing as different strains of one style—immersion writing—Robin Hemley offers new perspectives and practical advice for writers of this nonfiction genre. Immersion writing can be broken down into the broad categories of travel writing, immersion memoir, and immersion journalism. Using the work of such authors as Barbara Ehrenreich, Hunter S. Thompson, Ted Conover, A. J. Jacobs, Nellie Bly, Julio Cortazar, and James Agee, Hemley examines these three major types of immersion writing and further identifies the subcategories of the quest, the experiment, the investigation, the infiltration, and the reenactment. Included in the book are helpful exercises, models for immersion writing, and a chapter on one of the most fraught subjects for nonfiction writers—the ethics and legalities of writing about other people. A Field Guide for Immersion Writing recalibrates and redefines the way writers approach their relationship to their subjects. Suitable for beginners and advanced writers, the book provides an enlightening, provocative, and often amusing look at the ways in which nonfiction writers engage with the world around them.

What People Are Saying "... Emma’s journey with the love for her father and a car is so inspiring and heart-warming. I must meet Clancy!"....... Janis Winehouse (mother of singer Amy Winehouse) The richly detailed beauty of France unfolds along the back roads as a mother and young daughter set out on a unique adventure. The journey, which begins as a fundraising challenge in aid of Multiple Sclerosis, is testament to the reliability of Clancy, a vintage Peugeot with a colourful history of traversing hundreds of thousands of miles in extreme conditions. Blending a mother's devotion to her loved ones and the thrill of the open road, Clancy Goes to France is an inspiring story of how life should be about shared experiences and the appreciation of simple pleasures. This memoir celebrates the lessons passed on from parent to child and illustrates how a love of travel binds the generations of a family. The story lends itself as a travel guide to France's most alluring destinations and includes practical tips for making the most of travels with young children. If driving in France is something you enjoy this memoir will inspire you to jump on the next ferry and start your next European road trip . Those wishing to plan a French vacation should read this to understand the diversity that France has to offer. There is so much more than Paris on offer if you get off the beaten track. Emma Kate takes you through the Loire Valley past Bordeaux to the Aquitaine before crossing The Pyrenees to the Mediterranean Sea. A short stop in Provence and trips to the Camargue and in search of Lavender also give you inspiration to drive where it would be so easy to simply enjoy one place. Sit back and enjoy the journey through France on the back roads as you read this inspirational travel memoir. An Interview With The Author It’s very obvious that driving in France is a passion you have inherited from your father but what inspired you to write your own books about France? That’s an easy one. When it comes to travel books France is one of the countries I read about often. There are plenty of guide books and travel memoirs but I wanted to share my unique experience with my father through my own words. Having a vintage car like Clancy only enhances the journeys we take. I’ve read comments which put you into the category of inspiring women writers, how do you feel about that? It’s a bit strange actually. I simply write from my heart about the things that are important to me, but to be told I’m inspiring is very humbling. It means I’m doing a good job I guess! There are quite a lot of travel memoirs by women out there. Do you get a chance any of them? I love reading and escaping, I find it inspiring in both my personal life and when it comes to writing. With that said, it’s a novelty at the moment, my time is filled with being a single mum and writing whenever I can. In your book and on your website it’s very clear to see that you place huge value on the mother and daughter relationship you have with Lola. What message could you give to other parents who are struggling with maintaining a work life balance? As far as I’m concerned we all have choices. It comes down to priorities and for me I just don’t want to waste the time I have with my loved ones. I have chosen to live a simple life in order to allow me the privilege of more time with them. It’s hard to step back and look at the big picture but when you can do this and really think about what’s important to you it’s amazing what you can achieve. I notice that Clancy Goes To France is part of a series. Will there be any more France travel memoirs any time soon? I have one which I am writing at the moment and a second which I need to pop over to research! The plan for the foreseeable future is to not limit the series to France but also take people on our journeys on the back roads of Italy and Spain. There is so much to see and it is a great way to educate your children along the way.

Born in 1948 into a family of ministers in Kingston, Jamaica, the statuesque and strikingly beautiful Grace Jones lived with her family in Syracuse, NY, before launching a career as a model in New York City. Gaining fame as the cover girl for such publications as Vogue and Elle, Jones's flamboyant look proved to be a hit on the New York City nightclub circuit and she became a darling of the disco scene, which led to a recording contract and a substantial following among gay men. With her sexually charged, outrageous live shows, Grace soon earned the title of 'Queen of the Gay Discos'. When she moved to Paris in 1970, the French fashion scene embraced her unusual, androgynous looks and, in addition to cover work, she dominated the runways of designers like Yves St. Laurent and befriended the likes of Giorgio Armani and Karl Lagerfeld. While there, she shared an apartment with Jerry Hall and Jessica Lange and became artist Jean-Paul Goude's muse - he also fathered her son Paulo. (Grace was married twice - to a producer and a bodyguard - and she dated Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren for four years.) But with the dawn of the '80s came a massive anti-disco movement across the U.S., leading to Grace Jones focusing on more new wave and experimental-based work, putting her 2½ octave voice to good use. She is as known for her unique look as she is for her music and has influenced the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Annie Lennox. In the book, Grace takes us on a journey from her religious upbringing in Jamaica to her heyday in Paris and New York in the 70s and 80s, all the way to present-day London, where she is working on a new album.
