About Gia

A native Floridian, Gia de Cadenet dreamt of living in France when she was a child. In 2006, she put her professional life on hold for two years to get a master’s degree in Paris. But a few short weeks after arriving, she bumped into a a red-headed Frenchman and her fate was sealed. Ten years later, she’s balancing her roles as wife, mom and  business school professor. Paris was her first French home, but she happily traded it for Bordeaux. And three years later, on to discover la Ville Rose: Toulouse!

A couple of years ago, she decided to embark on another childhood dream – becoming a novelist. Teaching English and working as a translator, editor and ghostwriter for clients ranging from French bank Sociéte Generale to UNESCO to private individuals has helped her solidify her technical skills. Now it’s time to let her creativity loose.
