Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, French chef. Over the years, she’s visited many different countries, lived in many places, and worked many jobs— always on the search for the one thing that truly excited her. Then, one day, she found everything she’s been looking for: a passion for the written word and true love. Writing not only enabled her to open her heart, it led her to southwestern France, where she’s now married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met over twenty years ago, a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to one ridiculously adorable Charteux cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées, tasting wine in American-s

Seven Letters from Paris by Samantha Verant
"As I read this, I kept saying over and over to myself, 'If this was fiction, no-one would believe it.' But it's a memoir and it's a beautiful read. Imagine reconnecting with someone you met for just a few hours in Paris - 20 years later. The seven le" Read more of this review »
Seven Letters from Paris by Samantha Verant
"Samantha Verant’s publisher calls her book a memoir. In fact, it’s a modern day fairy tale: too improbable to be true, too heartwarming to be real. Here’s the nutshell synopsis:

“Don't be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don't have to live forever, you just have to live.”
Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”
