MAY WA MEMBER SPOTLIGHT - Doreen Porter

 

I had a career in journalism, working mainly for in-house publications including a weekly magazine for the police and a monthly one for the Ministry of Defence. Both were roles that enabled me to travel to places as diverse as Burma, the Cayman Islands and the USA. While working for Police Review, I had two books published with the inspiring titles of Working for the Police Force and Let’s Talk About Violence. Amazingly, after 30 years, they still appear on a Google search.

Seven years ago, I took early retirement and moved with my husband and cats to Saint Antonin Noble Val in SW France, the village that featured in the film The 100-Foot Journey. It was a bit of a culture shock, being able to write about anything rather than tanks, warfare and NATO stock numbers. I published a book, An A to Z of Life in France, which looks at the quirky side of life here, from the appeal of illuminated salt and pepper pots to the need for at least two hairdressers in even the smallest village. I continue the theme in my blog: www.anatozoflifeinfrance.blogspot.com.
