My Occupation author, translator, painter
My Bio Born in the French Alps, in Grenoble, Sylvie graduated in Political Sciences and holds a master's degree in English, with highest honors. She was a lecturer in the top preparatory schools for Political Sciences in Paris, and also translated some 25 novels from English into French, as well as a book on the tea ceremony in Japan. While a translator, she could not wait to write her own books. She even went as far as to change a character in a novel, and got told off by the publisher! She loves to travel and is a lover of the arts. She has been a painter and a photographer for many years, and has exhibited her paintings several times, both in Paris and in Toronto. The art and the photographs in her books are all by her. Some of her short stories have been published by GivalPress, both in English and in French, for University language students. She now lives both in Toronto and in Maui, Hawaii.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
* A book of short stories.
* A travel book, with photos I took in Egypt, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Austria, France, Italy, Fiji, New Zeland, Hawaii, Costa Rica...
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
"The power of now", by Eckart Tolle. Mind blowing, and mind shattering.
My favourite painting: "Virgin and Child with St Anne", by Leonardo Da Vinci - at Le Louvres museum, in Paris, in the Italian Renaissance section.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
"Creativity", by Osho.
