Hello. I’m Lisa Czarina Michaud, an American fiction writer living in France and author of coming-of-age novel Slanted and Disenchanted.

I created this newsletter as a home for all the non-fiction thoughts bouncing around my head. Anything from my life in France to the books I love to the music that' has defined me.

It’s a little of everything. And a little of nothing.

These are my musings. These are my untidy thoughts.

Welcome aboard. (Ahoy.)
