About

I am a pro author, with a number of titles from traditional publishers.  But I am also very interested in the growth of online publishing sites like Wattpad, and the way they reduce barriers between writers and readers.

Thanks for your messages everyone!  I thought of adding a French glossary at the end but I feared it would disrupt the reading experience because people would always be going to the back to check the word list.  Same thing for footnotes: it just wrecks the flow.
      
      I never use French in the book for anything that the reader really needs to know.  The French phrases in the book all mean something minor and unimportant like "Sure" or "Right on", or else they are endearments like "ma chere" which means "my dear".  It's just to give the reader a sense that these characters are speaking in another language.
