WRITING

I write accessible literary fiction in French and English, weaving in narratives and viewpoints, and exploring themes, such as grief, loss, projection, manipulation, and deceit.

 

All my stories contain an element of suspense, without providing all the answers, and raise questions which, I believe, are relevant to our shared human experience.

 

Whether novels or short stories, I’m passionate about writing. I love developing the psychology of my characters, crafting the plot as I write, while letting the story, at times, take me by surprise.

I have been writing fiction since 2007, working part-time to embrace my vocation, penning four novels:

Heading for the Wall (2014)

Not to Hold (2018)

L’éloge de l’ombre (2011)

Envolée (2021)

You can listen to my interview on the Couragemakers Podcast: E139. The Creative Process & Feeding Your Creativity with Caroline Jestaz (Google Podcasts / Apple Podcasts).

I mentor aspiring writers and have led six-week creative writing courses, as well as workshops, with Cambridge Community Arts (CCA) and the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA). I've also designed an online writing course.
