Who's That Girl?
Hi! I'm Valérie.
I'm a French Canadian (who bleeds maple syrup and poutine sauce) and I've lived in Montreal for most of my life. I speak French and English on a daily basis, although half the time I get confused about which language I'm supposed to use with whom.
I'm a Hobbit, a Ravenclaw, and a Disnerd. I love myths, legends, ghost stories, and fairy tales, and anything odd. I love to travel and visit new places, and try to imagine all the stories these places could tell.
I started writing when I was ten: my parents' divorce and my grandfather's passing brought me to the page. I took all the normal steps until finally, in 2012, I published my first novel (in French) with a traditional publisher: a story about a fiery redheaded teenager wanting to become a dragon rider. It's now eight years and seven books later and I've decided to explore the English market. I've opted for the indie publishing route because it gives me more creative control.
When I'm not writing, I can be found drawing, painting, playing video games, or reading in the tub...and feeling guilty about the fact that I'm not writing.
My readers mean the world to me. <3
