I should clarify that CC’s strong lesbian characters, Alex, Emilie, Tamara, Roberta, Maddy and Jo are NOT the Bad Guys in her urban plots. They are the ones whose slices of ‘past’ lives are exposed. They are the ones who turn to each other for support. It is from inside these healthy lust-love lesbian relationships that CC builds her layers of erotic sensuality. Her heroines'quest is emotional


Background Information

It all began when I came home feeling particularly fragile after a night on the scene. Though I had never kept a diary, I picked up a notepad and jotted down flashes of discomfort related to the alienating nature of the night’s experience. The following day, I found myself fleshing out these snippets of raw emotion into full sentences and paragraphs, which later became the opening chapter of North and Left from Here – C.C. Saint-Clair

By day, a teacher of Senior English and by night a writer of lesbian romance with a definite penchant for urban realism, C.C. went on to write another 6 novels.

Like Alex Delaforêt, the main character of her debut novel, Saint-Clair lives in Brisbane, Australia.

Born of French parents in Casablanca, Saint-Clair is a native French speaker, although she completed her formal education in the United States at The University of Texas [Austin], majoring in English Literature.

Though the sensuality of her writing appeals beyond label boundaries, her work quickly attracted the tag of ‘the thinking woman’s lesbian romance’. It is a description that captures both the sensual romanticism and the socio-political realism underpinning her storylines in which reflections on the choices we make, the risks we take and (un)resolved personal issues rise to the surface.

Accomplishments

7 paperback novels, ebooks, 2 erotic adult tales, and 2 screenplay adaptations of her novels since 2001.
Far From Maddy came in second @ the Rhodes Island Film festival GLBT screenplay competition in 2005 and in the qarter-finals [out of 3369 entries] of the very main stream international Scriptapalooza comp in august 2006.
Not a bad achievement for a script that is 100% "lesbian-oriented and more grunge than glam."
