Patricia Mansfield-Devine

Trish has been a professional writer, journalist and editor for more than 20 years. As a feature writer she has covered a broad range of subjects, although she concentrates mainly on home-interest sectors such as interiors, gardening and cookery, as well as property, lifestyle, travel and health.

Her first book, Living in France, was published by Harriman House in 2008. It’s a practical guide to making the most of your new life in France.

Her second book, Make Do & Cook, was published by WebVivant Press in 2010. It shows you how learning simple techniques, and understanding basic foods, allows you to eat well even on the tightest budget.

She blogs about decluttering, downshifting and the simple life at FreeShift.com and about the cosmetics and fragrance industries at Cosmetopica.

Trish is currently working on a number of books for WebVivant Press on subjects as diverse as collecting kimono and healthy living.

She also provides art direction – including costume and make-up – for the Zolascope filmmaking group.
