I hope you enjoy reading some of my short stories. I had started this blog in order to publish articles on art exhibitions around the area (south of France), but have been focusing more on my shorts. French humorist and author Laurent Boghossian interviewed me and wrote “The Legend of a Lady Samurai Artist: Erin Lynne.” I was invited to speak about my novel, Imperfections, at Les Journees des Ecrivains du Sud on 17 May 2014 in Aix-en-Provence. Here is a review of Imperfections. The book was released in French in 2016. I co-wrote Tour de France, Tallman Style with my sister. We published the book in 2016.

I also participated in a short film entitled La Ronde by director Vincent Ducarne.

If you’re interested in my journalistic publications, you can jump to my blog, Erin Tallman in Journalism.

I created an association based in Marseille: The Kinder World. We sponsor language trips for underprivileged students. Here’s information on the English competition we launched and the student who won.
