Claude Dancourt


I love books. I have books everywhere. The kitchen, the living room, bedroom, even the laundry room (not sure how that one happened). Housekeeping means picking up books and putting them back on shelves. Which is next to impossible, since the shelves are already full. I just love books, love to read, love to write.

Beside books, my house homes a crazy/witty cat called Nimh, two plants which stubbornly refuse to die (oops, yeap, made it, one plant now), an eclectic CDs collection and an even more random choice of DVDs. If I am not at the gym, checking my email box or wondering where I’ll travel next, it means my restless muses set another attack on me.

They tend to do so at the most inappropriate times, both a blessing and a curse. The only way to appease them is to surrender, and make mines Walt Disney words: “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates’ loot on Treasure Island.”
