Finding My Way.

My way so far is shaping out to be a dark thriller. It has plenty of gore, it’s fast-paced and contains elements that are both shocking and realistic. However, I did have some trepidations about taking on the topic for my first thriller because I know how it, by its very nature, may create strong reactions in some. I took time to reflect on why I am writing about that topic. Here is what I’ve concluded. I write because I have something to say, share, and express. Do I wish… Read more Finding My Way.

Achievable Goals.

I have never been good at setting goals or being exceptionally well organized; one could say that I’m something of a pantser (fly by the seat of your pants type). However, now that I feel more comfortable as a writer and know that I can tell a story, I am setting two goals for myself regarding this thriller I’m working on. 1. I will try to write 500 to 1000 words daily. 2. I want to complete the first draft by the Spring of 2023. Not the loftiest of goals… Read more Achievable Goals.

Creating new characters

I just created a new character, he will be a neighbour’s of Mary, the protagonist. He is a man in his sixties, an old school hippy, a good and decent man who doesn’t trust the Man (law enforcement, etc.) He and Mary get along and sometimes go foraging for wild mushrooms. He also taught Mary how to grow her own cannabis for medicinal purposes. Anyhow, Mary introduces him to her friend Teresa, an Officer in the S.Q. (Sureté du Québec). I find that having a mixed bag of friends can… Read more Creating new characters

Becoming the Writer I Dreamed.

I began write a couple of years ago in regards to my memoirs, but the fact of the matter is that I had been writing for quite some time, usually notes, descriptions for my paintings or putting down memories. I was an artist, a paintress for decades before ever imagining I could really write. Then, I decided I just had to write my memoirs and I wasn’t sure of myself or my skills, which I admit, were not too professional. So I hired a co-writer of sorts, someone with the… Read more Becoming the Writer I Dreamed.

Memoir news and new Thriller in the works!

As I excitedly await the release of my memoirs, published through Brainspired Publishing, I began imagining something new to write about, this time I wanted it to be a fiction and so I embarked upon this adventure that is writing a thriller. My life has been about coming to terms with who i am as a woman of transsexual origin, finding love and working through much of the trauma as well as all the wonders of being Queer. My life has been one of drawing and painting, describing and sharing… Read more Memoir news and new Thriller in the works!

A Storyteller is Born.

As I take on a new story, not about something as intimate and familiar as a memoir or even a book representing my art but instead I chose fiction, and while I am not ready to go in depth about the plot, I can say that it’s going to be a thriller. The protagonist, a character created out of whole cloth yet with aspects I am close to in that she is queer and a woman of trans origin, everything else about her will have to wait for when the… Read more A Storyteller is Born.
