    Caro Feely

    Apart from smoking on the fire escape at school - don't tell my parents - I was a co-founder of the first magazine published by students which covered chocolate obsessions, and the funny, eccentric and bizarre things that happen at girls only boarding schools.

    After university I wrote intermittent articles for newspapers and magazines related to my career in IT consulting. I started writing books in earnest in Dublin in 2003 while on maternity leave but it took a gift of Maeve Binchy's 'writers club' from my husband Sean to get my first published book Grape Expectations into good enough shape to attract a publisher - Summersdale - to whom I am eternally grateful for lifting me from the slush pile.

    Grape Expectations, published by Summersdale June 2012. If you are a bookseller and wish to sell/reference Grape Expectations please contact the publisher Summersdale.

    Sean and Caro Feely Through writing and sharing our experience I also spread the word about living lightly on the earth. Each small gesture may not seem a lot but it makes a difference: from sorting your rubbish into the recycling, avoiding unecessary packaging to demanding organic food and wine from your local restaurant. If you don't demand change through your purchases and by asking for it, it won't happen and our earth will slowly - or quickly - see how quickly a jet of pesticide killed a local french farmer at why organic - be poisoned by chemicals, plastic and fossil fuels. I highly recommend reading Maria Rodale's Organic Manifesto and Rachel Carsen's Silent Spring.

When you reach Gardonne (about 1 hour 10 mins from Bordeaux) turn right to Saussignac at the Renault garage. About 4kms from Gardonne the road to Saussignac crosses a district road and starts climbing. About 100m after crossing the district road take the left fork (signposted Chat Feely). Take the next road to the left (directly before the cemetary). We are the last property on that road. If you reach Saussignac village you have gone too far. From Saussignac village turn right at the school (also signposted Chat Feely) and then right after the cemetary as you be coming from the opposite direction.
