Short and long fiction
Current project: a second novel set in British Columbia, Canada. A mediation on the complexity of relationships and sexual identity, the book follows astrophysicist Juliet as she commences an affair with a female colleague, and the moral challenges linked to helping her winemaking husband, Nicholas, commit medically assisted suicide.
My first novel, completed in 2016, is set between Brussels, Canada, and the Belgian Congo. The story charts what happens when the lives of Léa, Lukas, Marianne, and Mark collide, and the transformations that take place when they come to terms with their exquisite and, very human, score of shortcomings.
