Welcome to the home of Fat Dogs. If you have a dig around you’ll find information about my books and the places we visited during our domaine-hunting adventures. I can’t resist including animal pics so I’ve also shared snapshots featuring all manner of creatures: furry, feathery and assorted bugs. You can view these along with the plants, people and places I write about.

And if you fancy an instant read, I publish a monthly short story which you can access here or subscribe to via the blog link provided.

Thanks so much for connecting; I do hope you enjoy browsing. I love hearing from readers, so please feel free to comment either via email or social media using the links provided in the Contact Section.

About Beth Haslam Best-selling author

Beth Haslam was brought up on an estate in Wales. Deep in the countryside, her childhood was spent either on horseback, helping the gamekeepers raise pheasants, or out sailing.

A serious car crash in 1991 ended Beth’s full time career, so she set up her own Human Resources consultancy business. As semi-retirement beckoned, Beth and her husband, Jack, decided to buy a second home in France. This has become a life-changing event where computers and mobile phones have swapped places with understanding French customs, and wrestling with the local dialect.

Beth is now occupied as never before. Raising and saving animals, writing, and embracing everything that rural France has to offer.

She’s loving it!
