In 2004 Nikki McArthur (with her husband and three children), traded in her life as an IT trainer and Hotelier in the UK, to live the good life in rural South West France. She now has five children, runs a letting business, Garden Centre and Landscaping business, gardening club and has also found the time to persue her love for writing.
Nikki is in the process of publishing a book on Moving to France as a family which will be released later this year. A further two books. Starting a Business in France and another on finding happiness and contentment are to be published next year.
A Mother in France blog started several years ago and Nikki has been invited to write many guest posts on other sites such as The Good life France, Mademoiselle Slimalicious, Mummy in Provence, Vegemitevix and various gardening articles for local papers and Guide2midipyrenees. She received early reecognition for her blogging skills in a review by the popular anglofrench site A Taste of Garlic and was awarded Blogger of the week.
A dedicated mother and natural helper and organiser, Nikki enjoys sharing the knowledge and experience she’s gained over the years, which has been her drive for writing. Her practical and down to earth approach to life shines through in her work and is popular with her regular followers. She uses her organisational skills to arrange several fund raising events at her garden centre and home for her favourite charities The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Les Potes a Pouf Dog Refuge and Frank Water.
