I'm a thirty-six year old Brit who was bitten by the French bug while still at school and dreamed of living in France long before I'd tasted my very first croissant. After studying for a Modern Languages degree, I moved to Paris in 1995. Thirteen years later, I'm still here.

I created my blog 'petite anglaise' back in July 2004 while I was working as a bilingual secretary. It was a hobby which was to become my bread and butter when, two years later, my employer found my blog and unceremoniously fired me. I decided not to skulk away with my tail between my legs, but to take them to court for wrongful dismissal. My legal battle attracted the attention of UK newspapers, but also of several publishers. The rest, as they say, is history.

Catherine’s Recent Updates

“Our break-up had been a resounding anti-climax. I wanted to be wept over, bitterly. I wanted to be fought for. Mourned, or regretted just a little.
I wanted to feel like I was someone who'd been worth having in the first place.”
Catherine Sanderson, Petite Anglaise

“I do still love you. I don't love you enough to be able to give you the things we dreamed about and planned.”
Catherine Sanderson, Petite Anglaise

“I tumbled into the taxi alone, closing the door closed with a dull thud before I could possibly change my mind. Not like this, I remember thinking. Whatever this thing is between us, it could only be tainted and cheapened by a semi-drunken encounter on the night of our first meeting. As the car pulled away I stared back at him. The thought that I might never see him again, that I might never know what it would feel like to be kissed by him, seemed unbearably cruel.
At a crossroads, I had been faced with a choice: two possible versions of my future mapped out ahead of me. But I didn't feel like I had made any sort of decision. All I had done was run away.”
Catherine Sanderson, Petite Anglaise
