Présentation de l'éditeur

#1 Amazon Best Selling Author

When newly-single party girl Vicki moved to Paris, she was hoping to indulge in wine, stuff her face with croissants, and fall in love. It proved to be much more difficile than she'd imagined. In this laugh-out-loud memoir, this cheeky storyteller recounts the highs and lows of her life in the City of Light. Sassy and shamefully honest, Vicki makes you feel as if you're right there in Paris stumbling along the cobblestones with her.

Will she find love? Will she learn to consume reasonable amounts of alcohol? Will the French administration ever cut her a break?

A funny memoir about coming of age and embarking on a new life in Paris. Part travel memoir, part love story, this collection of funny essays shows the humorous side of life, love, and drinking in Paris.

Interview with the Author


Q. What was your inspiration to write the Confessions series?

A. After a few too many drinks at the bar, I either turn to storytelling or karaoke. I'm much better at storytelling—or so my friends say! They encouraged me to put my tales to paper, and thus was born my series of memoirs, essentially a collection of funny true stories.

Q. OK, so they're technically memoirs. But they seem different than traditional memoirs. How would you categorize them?

A. Most of the bestselling memoirs are written by celebrities, who already have a huge audience. I had to choose a different angle in order to stand out, so I went for humor. I hope people enjoy my funny short stories, which have been compared to chick lit except they're true! I also talk about my travels, so my books would appeal to anyone who likes travel humor and travel memoirs by women. Confessions of a Paris Party Girl is a coming of age memoir with heavy doses of drinking humor, while Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer is a motherhood book that falls into the parenting humor or pregnancy humor categories.

Q. Yikes... Those are practically spoilers!

A. Sorry! Between my French last name and my author bio, I think the cat might already be out of the bag. However, even if you have a rough idea of how it all ends, you have no idea how rough it was getting there until you read my books!

Q. Aren't there already so many memoirs, and ones about Paris in particular? Why should I choose yours?

A. It's true, there are some really great Paris memoirs out there. The fact that I have read (and enjoyed!) so many bestselling memoirs myself makes me think it's a popular genre for a reason. We're always thirsty for another sip of Paris, right? To travel to Paris through the pages of a book... to fall in love with Paris again!

Q. In what order should I read the books?

A. Each book can stand alone, but like fine wine and pungent cheese, they go great together! I recommend the following order:

- Confessions of a Paris Party Girl: A Humorous Travel Memoir
- Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer: A Humorous Parenting Memoir
- Christmas Confessions & Cocktails: A Humorous Holiday Memoir with Sassy Drink Recipes
- Petite Confessions: A Humorous Memoirette with Sassy Drink Recipes
- Confessions & Cocktails: A Humorous Memoirette with Sassy Drink Recipes

If you enjoy funny true stories, and want to see the crazy things that happened to this American girl in Paris, you'll enjoy the Confessions series. Thanks for reading!

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Vicki is a young American full of dreams and ambition. She decides to move to Paris when she loses her job. Her adventures in the city of lights are hilarious and full of surprises. Her struggle with French men, love, work and bureaucracy made me laugh out loud, I could not pu it down before I was done with it !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect for all chick lit lovers...and anyone looking for a humorous well written mental escape :) 19 mars 2014
Par Sanda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Let me tell you a thing or three about my new friend Vicki (granted she knows nothing of this friendship but more about that later). The best way I can describe this book is that it was like reading a long, hilariously intimate email from a close friend. So what happens when a 20-something girl from St. Louis (MISSOURI!) with a basic knowledge of french and a great appetite for adventure decide to move to the city of love (and great English speaking bars apparently), Paris? Well first of all you get a glimpse into the everyday life of the french through the eyes of an outsider, a colorful cast of characters and loads of 'laugh out loud' moments (am I ever grateful that I read this book in the privacy of my own home).

One of my pet peeves when it comes to "chick-lit", lighter literature and such is the fact that just because the subject matter is lighter (often more humorous) that often means that the entire focus is on the plot (and even that often leaves a lot to be desired) and not on the writing style and/or quality of writing. You can't imagine my relief when right from the start it was obvious that won't be the case with this book. The fact that I didn't have to stumble over poorly composed sentences meant that I could give my full attention to all of Vicki's adventures and misadventures. Plus, in case I ever decide to move to Paris I will be armed with an impressive knowledge of french bureaucracy (paper, paper and more paper) and great tips on how to handle apartment hunting in the city.

By the time you finish reading this book you too will feel that a) there simply has to be a sequel to this book and b) that Vicki is just another one of your friends. In my case, part 'b' was helped along by Vicki's ("barely noticeable") OCD, (takes one to know one) germophobia, humour and perceptive way of viewing (and describing) people and situations. (well the fact that every once in a while she ends up having just a few too many drinks will have many 20 something relating and many 30 and 40 something reminiscing) Now there's nothing else for me to do but hope and wait for the sequel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Girl After My Own Parisian Life 3 avril 2014
Par Amy Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a former expat resident of Paris, I found it only too easy to relate to many of the tales Lesage describes. Arriving at her first apartment, totally unsure of where she was actually supposed to be, and speaking too little French to properly ask (been there, done that). The difference between “original intended time” to spend in Paris (hers being 3 months, mine being 4) and the “actual time”(mine begin 3 years, hers 9, and counting). Finally making friends with other expats, and forming that special bond because you all face the same struggles finding your sense of belonging, and opening a damn bank account. The list of similarities go on and on. I felt like I was re-enacting my life and experiences in Paris through her words. I know the fondue place she is so fond of, and was familiar with her go-to bar, The Long Hop (mine was The Guillotine, pretty much right around the corner actually). It’s actually quite amazing our lives never overlapped there. Or maybe they did, and we just didn’t realize it.

While this book, as the name suggests, focuses solely on life in Paris, I think it recounts situations every expat faces. The feeling of being brand new, knowing no one, having to carve your own path in a culture completely unfamiliar. Lesage dealt with her fair share of struggles. She faced down the Big Bad Bureaucracy. And, in the end, she won. Hats off to you, girl.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Super funny and spot-on 13 mars 2014
Par Christine Schwartz Hartley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I am biased: I know Vicki -- she was the first babysitter I hired when my husband and I moved to Paris with our two sons, 3 and a half and 5 months at the time. She was a great babysitter, and great fun for us parents to be around and chat with, so I was prepared to love this book (and laughed and laughed at the depiction of my family!). But I must say I was blown away by how good and funny this book is! Vicky's observations relating to life in Paris (including the insane bureaucracy) are right on and delivered with such wit and humor; her honesty about her daily struggles, her friendships, her love life and her epic nights (and early mornings) are engaging and refreshing -- it's a really wonderful read. Go Vicki!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny, lovely, highly recommend 4 septembre 2015
Par Diane Stevenson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I'd read Vicki's Christmas Confessions book first and couldn't wait to go back and read her memoirs, starting with this one. Like my first experience with Vicki's writing, her style is so warm and bubbly, you can't help but get caught up in the story. And oh how I laughed - as an expat in France myself, there is so much I could relate to - but Vicki's style is unique, never overlabouring the point and keeping you wanting to read on. As soon as I'd finished this one, I went straight onto the Potty Trainer in Paris memoir.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely loved the story of her journey in Paris 22 mars 2014
Par Lisa Prichard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I do not have time to read much and I was shocked that I could not put this book down. I think I read it in three nights which is incredible for me. I loved how she came to Paris by herself (unbelievable), met her love, had a family, etc. etc. Vicki adds a humor to her journey that keeps you entertained and curious what is next. I would highly recommend it and I would like a follow up version after she had Leonardo.
