Natasha Lester worked as a marketing executive for L'Oreal before penning the New York Times and internationally bestselling novel The Paris Orphan. She is also the author of the USA Today bestseller The Paris Seamstress and The Paris Secret. When she's not writing, she loves collecting vintage fashion, traveling, reading, practicing yoga and playing with her three children. Natasha lives in Perth, Western Australia.
In Lester’s hotly anticipated next book, The Riviera House, on-sale August 31, 2021, readers are whisked away to two drastically different worlds that span generations and collide in an unexpected and satisfying way; Lester masterfully alternates between German-occupied Paris during WWII and modern-day French Riviera.
