Extra information:

My books: Paris Revisited (Chrysalis Books, 2003); Paris Night + Day (Pulse Guides, 2005); Chic Paris (Authentik Travel Guides, 2008); France: Instructions for Use (Illustrata Press, 2008).

Aside from travel and shopping articles (for The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Independent, among others), I have written profiles including the CEO of Veuve Clicquot, film directors and designers.

Re fixing, I found Sandrine Viollet, for the BBC series Sandrine's Paris, and interviewees for a series on living in France. I have a large network of contacts, knowledge of locations and speak fluent French. Willing to work on a results basis.
