BiffatAida.jpgFor anyone who missed the picture of Biff at the outdoor opera a couple of years ago, with his eyes on the chocolate pie, here it is again. I think the expression on his face says it all, really. (It's actually one of my favourite pictures of him.)

Also for books lovers, I have written a 2-part guest blog for LibertyLondonGirl today and yesterday, on six books that make you happy.

Soooo gorgeous. And I trust your Pet shared her glass of fizz with you?

Hi Angela,

No chance! But that's actually not my pet holding the glass of fizz. It is one of our friends.

Biff please tell Karen i am absolutely loving her books ... now half way through Toute Allure having just discovered them via the review in the DMail last w/end. She has a massive talent but then i've always admired her writing. I hope she writes lotsmore books and keeps up the beauty writing too! x

Biff...have you any book signings arranged for next week? As I am over in your area?
Would love Tout Soul signed...:)

Dear Sarah,

thank you so much for your lovely comments. I've passed them on to my pet, and please be reassured that I am supervising her time very closely and will make sure that she does some beauty writing soon.

all best,

hi Katie

Thanks again for your comments. I have lots of girl dogs as friends but no special lady friend. Because of matters too delicate to mention here, little Bifflets would not be possible.

We will next be doing a book signing at fish & chip night in Champniers on Easter Monday and I often take my pet to the Grand Galerie in Civray for coffee on a Tuesday morning, so if you are in France, I could sign your book there.
best regards, Biff x

Finally Tout Soul arrived. As I live in the USA, it took a while to get here. I am enjoying your books and guess I will have to wait a year before your next one. Any chance of your doing a tour of the US to promote your books?

Hi Karen,

I am so sad to have finished Tout Soul because now I have to wait for the next book and I don't know how long that will be. Can you give us an idea? Please never stop writing about your life. You are a unique voice for those of us who haven't gone down the yummy mummy route and who don't want to read chick lit or boring aga sagas. On behalf of women everywhere, THANK YOU and please keep going!

I found your amazing book Tout Sweet quite by accident at a "big" book store. I Just finished and I loved it! The next day (Yesterday) ran back to get Tout Allure...Today I find this lovely blog and to my giddy surprise there is a part three? Tout Soul, oh I am in reading heaven...Thanks for these wonderful creations...Your life in France sounds si bon!
Biff is so adorable, I'd be "eye balling" a chocolate pie too if I was sitting on that picnic blanket.

Ah! So, that is what Biff looks like. Adorable! I just finished reading all three books. Thank you for sharing your life with your readers. And, my condolences on your loss. I hope you are healing.

Very nearly finished Tout Soul and have enjoyed all three books so much! I kind of wish I hadn't read them so I'd still have them all to look forward to. x

I have enjoyed the two books that have been availabel on Kindle. Would you share the name of the Jo Malone fragrance that you wrote about in Tout Soul. I understand it is discontinued but am wondering what type of fragrances it held. Best wishes.

Karen, have just completed Tout Soul as part of the trilogy - it is one of the best books that I have ever read. I went through the entire gamut of emotions with you and I am so pleased that you found the strength to complete the book so that we could share your experiences both happy and sad. I wish you love and happiness for the future.

Dear Biff and Karen,
I just finished reading your wonderful latest book 'Tout Soul'. It was both so entertaining and heart breaking. I don't usually write comments like this on books that I've read but after having read Tout Soul, I felt I had to. I too very recently lost my beloved father quite suddenly and totally unexpectedly. He was also in Intensive Care Unit and in a coma. When I was reading your book, it was as if I was re-living, re- experiencing all that pain and anguish once again. My tears never stopped and my heart went our for all that you had to go through. I also have been pondering a lot and trying to make sense of it all, about this very complex issue of happiness especially after my father's death. So reading Tout Soul was for me almost a healing process. Thank you Biff and Karen for sharing that with all of us. And may I offer my deepest condolences on your loss. I have also decided to 'march on'... despite everything, life still is full of beauty and happiness.
Lots of love

Biff ,I saw a Le Biffy lookalike last week outside a farm nr Availles Limouzine....nearly swerved off the road.!!
Started to re read Tout Sweet again whilst chilling in Savigne..my sister has taken Tout Soul to La Tania pour apres ski.
Your human's books are well travelled.
Please can you ask her when nombre 4 is on its way?
