About Us

Isabelle Demenge, the Author

Isabelle Demenge is a native of Paris who moved to New York City to start a family. She has lived many lives: mother of three boys, banking & finance lawyer in a major international firm, world traveler, amateur photographer and writer. A graduate of the University of Chicago Law School and the University of Paris II, she spent a decade in Hong Kong focusing on family trips, photography, and travel writing.  She now lives between New York and Hong Kong.

Facing the difficulties of traveling with small children in Cambodia, she decided to write for her kids the book that she was looking for. Having passed her kids’ crash-test, she decided to develop a series of children’s travel books.
