I’m a French-born, Glasgow-based writer, cook and critical thinker, and co-host of the online reading community SPK Book Club. My debut novel, The Yellow Kitchen, is a story of belonging and friendship and was published and selected as Indie Book of the Month in July 2022. Breaststrokes, a literary novel about consent and desire, will be published in May 2024.
I’m also interested in the short story form and my story, 'Fernanda’s Fish Soup', was shortlisted for the 2022 Harper Bazaar’s competition. Most of my non-fiction work focuses on memory and archives, food and seasonality, and how these interplay with language, bodies and cultures. I’m passionate about the socio-politics of storytelling and my practice threads between fiction and non-fiction. I also teach French as a second language to children and adults, and I’m keen to help any storyteller find their voice.
