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.

Excerpt from Breaking Free: 45 Years in the wrong body

“While in convalescence, I had to use one of those donut cushions in order not to sit directly on my new labia and the vulvic area, which were still way too sensitive for any pressure. All of the women who had had the same surgery done on them walked around with their donut cushions. I fancied we could call ourselves the ladies of the cushions and maybe we could do a musical chair thing and see who got to sit with their cushions tucked under the fannies.” Joelle Circé LaraméeBreaking… Read more Excerpt from Breaking Free: 45 Years in the wrong body

Excerpt from Breaking Free: 45 Years in the wrong body.



Even as a child, I knew that I was different than how I physically presented. Not with any clarity, mind you, but I did know there was something about me that was off. It seemed to me that I somehow had the wrong pieces. Yes, I was a puzzle with pieces belonging to another box.

Writing as I once painted.

I keep wondering about the reason why I’ve taken up writing, and the basic truth of it is that I have always been a storyteller. The difference is that for many decades, my stories were described in oils. Yes, I used to be a paintress, so drawing and painting were the mediums that I shared those stories. Then, I hurt my drawing hand on a couple of occasions, making it painful to hold a brush in hand for more than a few minutes. I could have felt a deep loss,… Read more Writing as I once painted.

In plain Sight, a queer trans woman author!

The Space Between, oil on canvas, 36in. x 48in. Creating and being unapologetic about being a queer and atheist woman of trans origin is, as with other outsider identities, can be challenging at times, but ultimately, liberating, especially as I age. I choose to be visible, not to shy away from being seen. It’s just the way I am. In some milieu’s, I might be perceived as a throwback of the traditional trans woman, the one into surgeries and passing and adopting hetero-normative habits. However, the truth of it is… Read more In plain Sight, a queer trans woman author!
