Lynn McBride is an American writer, editor, and educator who has lived in France since 2003. Before moving she lived in Charleston, SC, where she was a Regional Editor for Meredith Publishing (Better Homes & Gardens et al) for 10 years. Since moving to Europe she has written for travel and home/garden magazines and websites for the US and the UK. When Lynn and her husband moved to France, they fell serendipitously into an apartment in a medieval château in Burgundy, where they lived with the owners for several years. She began a blog about their life there called Southern Fried French, with weekly posts about French culture, language, cooking, and château life. Her new book was born out her love of language study, the frequent questions about language from her blog readers, and her growing realization that Europeans enjoy great advantages with their mastery of multiple foreign languages. Lynn and her husband still live in Burgundy, where she is still studying her French.
