About the Secrets of Paris

In October 1999 Heather Stimmler-Hall began writing weekly travel articles called "Secrets of Paris" for Suite101.com (archived page). The Secrets of Paris newsletter (which began as a Yahoo! Group) was started in January 2001 as a way of sharing her latest finds and writings with friends (both French and foreign) living in Paris. In 2002 the Secrets of Paris website was created to archive the newsletters and allow Heather a place to blog additional information. By 2005, the Secrets of Paris universe grew to include a visitor resource guide, calendar and custom private tours. Through word of mouth alone the Secrets of Paris has become a popular source of alternative Paris information for both residents and visitors, with subscribers from over 30 countries.

About Fleur de Lire Press

In early 2007, the French limited liability company, Fleur de Lire EURL, was created to encompass the Secrets of Paris website, the guided tours, and a new independent publishing company. Fleur de Lire Press published its first book in a series, Naughty Paris: A Lady's Guide to the Sex City in September 2008, the Paris Pastry Guide iphone app and eBook in 2011 and Naughty New York in 2012. In summer 2009, the Secrets of Paris was split into two separate websites: Secrets of Paris is now an insider's guide for English-speaking Parisians and those who visit regularly, while the visitor resource guide (hotels, dining, sightseeing, getting around) moved to the new site, Sleep & Eat Paris.

Secrets of Paris is owned by the French limited liability company Fleur de Lire:
