About Me

An American author who lived in Paris

I'm an Amazon bestselling author who lived in Paris for 11 years, and I now live in my hometown of St. Louis with my French husband, rambunctious son, and charming daughter, all of whom mercifully don't laugh when I say "au revoir." I prove daily that raising French kids isn't as easy as the hype lets on. In my spare time, I write, sip bubbly, and prepare for the impending zombie apocalypse.

My books include:

Confessions of a Paris Party Girl
Confessions of an Expat in Paris
Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer
Christmas Confessions & Cocktails

I also share my ramblings on my blog and elsewhere on the internet. I love fondue, wine, math, and zombies. Everything's better with zombies.

What's this site about?

Much as my fans are begging me (ha!), I can only write so many books. This blog is a way to fill in the gaps and give you a glimpse of the crazy things that happen in my daily Parisian life. It's also a chance for me to interact with the people who so nicely read my work. I mainly write about Paris life, parenting, author life, and zombies. Check out my top stories to be sure you don't miss anything!

You don't sound busy enough, Vicki

That's right! In addition to writing books and raising two energetic kids, I also help other authors edit and publish their work. And when I'm not doing that, I'm usually listening to an audiobook or dreaming about being an extra on The Walking Dead.

I'd love to hear from you! Shoot me an email at vicki@vickilesage.com or stay in touch via Facebook. I promise I'll reply! That is, until the Zombie Apocalypse happens, at which point I'll either be in a bunker or will be eating your brains.
