Award-winning Novelist and Playwright


Background Information

I was born and grew up in France, where I developed a love for language, literature, and good food. In my early thirties I moved to Australia where I am based now.

I am an agricultural economist and a linguist by education, and a management consultant by trade. However, my passion for writing and literature led me to more creative endeavours...

I started by writing short plays. Having studied acting in Sydney and in Paris, it just seemed a natural extension of performing on stage. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to continue. The rest is history, as we say... I write in both English and French. One of my plays, My Sister's Choice, also makes extensive use of sign language.

 

 I have published two novels, The Wings of Leo Spencer, Body Swap, and three plays, The Birthday Knife and Guys, Only Guys!, and My Sister's Choice. I have written two full-length plays and a large number of short plays, which have been produced in America, Australia, the UK, Singapore and Malaysia. Some of them have won prizes. I have also written and published (mostly online) a large number of articles related to the issue of rare diseases, research and patients, translated in many languages throughout Europe. My writing credits also include an award-winning short story and a radio play.

Metaphore du Rapide, a novel I wrote in French is going to be published in February 2011. I am currently working on a thriller which will take place in Hong Kong.

Here's a list of my plays:

Full-Length Plays

My Sister’s Choice
Two sisters. Both Deaf. One who signs and one who doesn’t. It’s all very well, until one of them introduces her boyfriend to the other…
A two-act play written for Deaf and hearing audiences, with a mixture of spoken and signed languages
 
Eighty-three
What would you do if your eighty-three year old father told you he was dating someone, shortly after your mother’s passing? And what if he had been doing so for many years?
 
Short Plays
 
Love and Light
Tania’s deceased husband has left her with bills to pay, no job and no idea where he stashed the money. Will consulting a Psychic provide her with the answer she seeks?
 
The Birthday Knife
Never give someone a knife for their birthday… you may end up regretting it.
 
Guys, Only Guys!
David is about to reincarnate as a gay man… and he is ecstatic. But should he, really?
 
What if it’s Bad News?
An unopened letter, and the sad news it may contain…
 
Smell the Roses
Porn and mothers-in-law don’t go well together…
 
The Chopper
A play about passion, fate, and life choices
 
The Gene of Truth
A defective gene… and what ensues
 
For the Love of Men
Gabriel is at it again…. trying to dissuade unsuspecting candidates from becoming gay. But in whose interest, really?
 
The Review
We’ve all had performance reviews at work… and we all know they can be daunting. Craig had prepared well for his review, but nothing could prepare him for what he was about to experience…
 
In the Middle of the Night
Brad wakes up in the middle of the night. It’s pitch black and he can’t see a thing. But he can feel something is definitely not right…
 
It starts with a ‘D’
A day in the life of two very special girls
 
Bye Mum! Bye Dad!
A last farewell to Grandad and Grandma, or so it seems…
