Hello, My name is Caroline and I live in British Columbia. My first language is French but since English literature is more abundant here, it feels more spontaneous for me to write in English. It would not be beyond be to translate my own work, though. I have written one novel so far, but after a few rejections from publishers and some major rewriting, I found that I had evolved beyond my subject and was ready to move on to other projects. So far, I've had one short story published in a French anthology and one article in Equus magazine. I have also participated to the translation of a couple of articles from English to French. My main interest remains in novel writing. I am currently typing the second draft of a teen/young adult novel. First draft was hand-written. I only have a few more pages to go. Then, the real editing work will begin and I look forward to it. I came here looking for opinions on a few specific issues relating to my novel, but before I ask, I'll get a bit more acquainted with this forum. Hopefully, I can also be of help to other writers here. Thank you.
