To all my
Viewers, Readers and Friends,
First let me
introduce you to "RACE. THE COLOUR OF SHAME": my recently published debut Novel,
a "Supernatural" thriller about deeply rooted racism and reincarnation which
will be adapted to the big screen; and now available worldwide on "Amazon" and
"Barnes & Noble".
me introduce you to my global world of "Timeless
certainly know by now after reading my biography, being a former model, as well
as interior designer, and now more recently a "Novelist" (something which
evidently allows my curious mind to expand into a brand new field of
creation...) I can simply define myself at a cross roads of my life as a
with obviously more than one artistic skill. So for the public at
large and my new found "readers" to be able to fully understand all my artistic
choices, or to define myself with only one of these roles, would be limiting
myself to only "one field" of creation; and my creative mind doesn't work that
If I did so,
I certainly would be extremely frustrated by this kind of self-imposed "creative
limitation". In fact, I do get more energized when I am able to
fully realize each of my artistic visions.
As far as I
can recall, since an early age I had always translated my artistic visions into
"action" because without knowing it, I was also what people generally call an
"autodidact" as well as an entrepreneur.
publishing my next two Novels, which are part of an international trilogy: first
the romantic thriller "The
New Starine" and "Act of Intention" which is already completed; then
which is now in the last editing stage, I also intend to launch
other lines of products from my fields of creation. Something that's a new
exciting challenge to me, and which truly helps me escape the quite demanding
characters of my Novels.
A step back into the "real world", instead of just
spending all my days isolated into an ivory tower listening to the voices and
perturbations of my fictional characters...
followed (by choice or convictions...) any particular "trends", simply because I
know that trends never last; and with my own taste and opinions,
it is quite evident to think outside the box and always be into more than
one field of creation. This is the reason why that in parallel to my demanding
writing, I am also creating my first line of fashion, called "New French

upon my life, I also now realized in this present incarnation the depth of my

natural kindness and verbal elegance that comes with a loving heart; and without
a doubt a great mind...

I always try my best to translate this essential
primordial emotion in all my creations, such as the unexpected apparition of
Angela's guardian Angel at the end of "Race. The Colour of Shame"; an loving apparition that seems to
have touched so many of my readers ...
So my friends, what I have just explained can
hopefully give you a clearer idea about who I am not only as an Artist, but as a
person as well. I sincerely wish to all of you to be able to pursue your own
projects, dreams or "visions"; and also that you will be able to
do your best in your own endeavors.
I can say by now that life can be a "good thing" if we truly believe in
ourselves, and when we don't waste time in wrong projects or wrong
relationships. It is, I think, important to live each day in
alignment with our own principles; but above all in alignment with our heart and

choose to express to my public my inner thoughts today because I am becoming a
Novelist: someone who creates with "words" and lines of thoughts; something
radically different than all the things I have done before. But as
I explained before, I have never been afraid of my own thoughts, nor by my
opinions, or aspirations. I learned that knowledge is knowing what
to say, and that "wisdom" is knowing when to say
So if I
decided to write "Race. The Colour of Shame" at this point of my life, after
being known mostly for my polished image and my elegant decors, it was certainly
not an "accident"; simply because I was born in AFRICA, a large
tormented continent. So this particular story has been in gestation in my mind
for the last two decades.
subject of deeply rooted racism, but also "reincarnation" are certainly not the
ones that most Novelist choose to pursue, but to me it's simply now a question
of moral choice.
This is also
the reason why when most people today introduce themselves to the public in a
"generic way" by not revealing who they really are, they are certainly afraid of
public judgment. I have decided to introduce myself on my own site
in a more "intimate way".
By doing so, I also try to respond to the questions
of my new readers who most of the time ask me who I am - not as an artist- but
"as a person"; something that I hope they will understand in the decades to come
with my involvement in the cause against animal abuse; and also against modern
As I have
already said, I always do or say what I truly believe, and when sometimes I make
mistakes, I do prefer to say "I can't believe I did that"; instead
of: "oh, I wish I did This...".
The one thing
that I know by now is that our life is mostly a reflection of all our personal
choices, and of the decisions we make when we stand at the crossroads while
wondering if we should go in this direction, instead of the "other one";
or if we should simply stay (and sometimes stagnate...) where we already
made to climb, and I know by experience that most people I meet are indeed more
afraid of depth than height; but again, this is only my humble

conclusion, my friends, and based only upon my own experiences, I can simply
wish you to always try your best in pursuit of what you really want in your
life; but above all, pursue your own "unique
Let me also
say that what is commonly known as “life", is in
fact an awakening expression of our deepest secrets, dreams and desires; so go
after yours, now!
you all the best, I also simply ask you to think about all this, my friends…
