    • I am multicultural, born in France and living in the US...I have been writing as far as I can remember. I make my story available for free, because I love to discuss it with readers more than anything.
      I am interested in the aspect of freedom that the novella implies...

        • I love mysteries, horror, some lesbian fiction such as Sarah Waters' "Affinity", but I love all kinds of books, Henry Miller, Melville, Thomas Mann, Sue Grafton, I really love anything that's good!

From the rocky coves of the small island of Porquerolles in her teenage years, the glamour of the Cannes Film Festival in the 60's to a cafe in Paris in the 80's as a middle aged woman, Christine doesn't really know if she is looking for love, or if love is looking for her.

At the terrace of a small outdoor cafe, she discusses Marguerite Duras with an unknown woman, and enters into a whirlwind of fear and desire only mitigated by good food and the magic of the city. Has Christine learned anything about love in her travels?

In Venice Beach, California, now mature, she becomes smitten with a woman 30 years her junior. As she tries to give Bethany some comfort, she will let herself descend once again into the mysteries of infatuation. Will she be able to follow the advice of her teenage years, finally be able to enjoy the good life, and recover her peace of mind?
Get ready to travel through love, space and time...
The style is introspective, and my hope is that the story will generate in the reader more lust for life than plain old lust...Also, if you love movies, there are plenty of movie references in the story...
