It is a great pleasure to share a few pages of the first book of my novel series titled “Madame D.C.” with you. We have spent many years writing and editing this manuscript, the culmination of our dream to become a fiction writer. We hope you enjoy it reading as much as we did writing it. Just click where it says “Madame D.C.” in the Menu icon and you will see the first 52 pages of the manuscript.It is still “a work in progress.”

Last night I had a little disagreement in my dreams with the lady of the statue, the symbol of my heroine. Legend says that she had sat in that bench to wait for the return of her departed boyfriend who finally succumbed in the horrible trenches of the Somme battle. She stubbornly waited for days on end until the cold Atlantic weather got the best of her.
-“Doctor, why aren’t you putting the whole manuscript online?” she asked me.
-“Oh, I’m still editing it,” I replied. “Besides I’m negotiating its publication…”
-“Fine…I’ll keep waiting for you. But you can only show my back for the time being. You’ll only be allowed to show my full figure in the cover of the published book…Suffisant.”
What do you want me to say? Women!
Please share with us the joy of reading and discussing our manuscript.
