I was born and raised on a farm in a village in the province of Québec, in Canada. I’m the youngest of four daughters. I left home at 17 to study languages in cégep and then English to French translation in university. Now I’m back to my hometown to raise my only daughter.
I’ve started writing stories at exactly the same time I learned how to write. My very first “manuscript” was written in those big, awkwardly shaped letters characteristic of first graders’ handwriting.
Dozens of novels started and none finished later, I decided that I would complete precisely the story I had the least faith in. A mushy romance (my other stories are either high fantasy or urban fantasy). It just seemed easier to finish a story when I know it’s never going to be a masterpiece. I just wanted to “take the habit” of finishing my stories. That was in 2016: I finished not one, but two first drafts that year.
Now, my goal is to polish those and keep writing more. I want to be writing for the rest of my life, regardless of whether I get traditionally published…
I have chosen to live a writer’s life.
