Welcome to EmilyintheGlass! I’m a writer who divides her time — somewhat unevenly at the moment — between France and her old Kentucky home. This blog began when I got a job teaching English in Dijon and has since grown into the very fuel for my creative writing energy. My passion is the relationship between French and American cultures, but you’ll find other topics here and there. Thanks so much for stopping by!
About the name: When I was little I read a book by Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables’ creator) called Emily of New Moon. Emily’s best and most trusted friend was her own image in the glass, which she consulted whenever she found herself in some kind of trouble or transition.
Over the years, I have paid tribute to my own EmilyintheGlass by taking sometimes serious but mostly wacky photos of my reflection every once in a while (like this one, from Homearama).
