My name is Valerie and I have been writing in French since I was 12. I only started writing in English 5 years ago but it has become my favourite language to write in.Don’t get me wrong, French will always be my first love but English allows me to reach a wider audience.
I am a driven, strong headed, heartbroken, sometimes crazy, imaginative and creative woman who loves to write as a hobby. I love creating worlds and characters, share stories and events but also making people feel, real and raw emotions that makes us all human.
In my real life, in no particular order of importance, I am an Executive Assistant to the Assistant Commissioner for a branch of the government of Canada. think of it as a whip and a right hand of the big boss 🙂 I also teach Zumba on a regular basis and I own a company called Cake Addiction. We make cakes.
I’ve made many bad choices in my life and 6 years ago I said goodbye to the love of my life. I recently reconnected with him only to find out that he is a psychopath who preys on people like me. I am in the process of getting a divorce and now truly walk this earth alone with a part of my heart that will forever be missing but I refuse letting it define me. Everything happens for a reason and his absence, the hole that I called my broken heart is a constant source of inspiration for my stories. It is how I can manage to write such tangible and raw emotions.
But my marriage isn’t just a failure, it allowed me to bring to this world the best and the most awesome little girl. Being her mother is not only an honour but a privileged. I may not be perfect but I love her more than anything and will always be there for her. She holds the rest of my heart and I find solace in knowing that no matter what happens, I will always be proud to call her daughter. She is my drive and my sunshine, a constant reminder that life is absolutely beautiful and worth living.
