About Beth Haslam
A serious car crash in 1991 ended Beth's full time career in Personnel management, so she set up her own Human Resources consultancy business. As semi-retirement beckoned, Beth and her husband, Jack, decided to buy a second home in France. This has become a life-changing event where computers and mobile phones have swapped places with understanding French customs, and wrestling with the local dialect.
Beth is now occupied as never before. Raising and saving animals, writing, and embracing everything that rural France has to offer.
She's loving it!
