After years of writing junk mail in advertising, Canadian Janice MacLeod devised an exit strategy to finance her own sabbatical. She then skipped town and travelled with nothing more than her suitcase and a small set of watercolours. Along the way, she painted letters about her travels and mailed them to friends. Enamoured with this unique medium, she opened an online shop and ended up sending monthly letters to hundreds of subscribers who were hungry for fun mail. While in Paris, she met the lovely Christophe, who built her a closet so she would finally unpack her suitcase. She's been an embarrassment to the French language ever since. They got hitched and hit the road. Now they're hanging their hats in the Rocky Mountains. Janice wrote the New York Times bestselling book PARIS LETTERS (2014), and co-wrote two other books. Janice has been featured in magazines such as Elle, National Geographic, Canadian Living, Canadian Family, Cosmopolitan, Chatelaine, Glamour, Flare, Psychologies, Huffington Post, The New York Times, Psychologies, Renegade Collective, Business Insider, and and and... the list continues.
