The Official Bio

Parisian born and bred French pastry chef, V.P Colombo currently lives in Sydney where she founded and ran Fleur de Sel, a homemade cake and dessert business, before dedicating her time to writing. Her macarons, like all her food created without artificial colourings and preservatives, were much loved at the Balmain market in Sydney, as were her scrumptious dessert tables created for weddings.

V.P Colombo left Paris, via Singapore, to arrive in Sydney in 2010, and stayed in Australia to create stability for her daughter. The challenges of immigration were compounded by severe depression and life threatening food allergies. 

A Little Bite of Happiness emerged through this period as these challenges, combined with her passion for food, sparked her imagination as a writer. The resulting book, her first, is an homage to food, sensuality, love, loss and simply life in all its glory.

Even as a young child she was always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone and everyone who would listen. Since then, she's progressed quite a bit to formulating longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much larger audiences. As a professional storyteller, she's adept at using her imaginative thinking and creative flair to bring her stories to life in engaging and entertaining ways.

Now Let's Get Real

Writing has always been a hobby and cathartic experience for me. Turning my passion into a fulfilling career as a professional Author has been one of my greatest life achievements. Since 2015, I’ve written my butt off to write several books - one published so far, and few in the making - constantly educating myself with new ideas and challenging myself with different writing techniques and competitions. I love learning more about my readers, and would love to hear more about yourself, your tastes, and what you’d like me to write next.
