When did you first start writing?
I began writing when I was about 18 years old. I was a great fan of hunting and fishing and I wrote some articles in local newspapers of Montreal
What's the story behind your latest book?
It took me 30 years to write that one! L'Affaire Delma was a project that I started back in 1980. But I had to work in home renovations and tile setting to pay the bills, so writing was a secondary thing for me at that time. It is only when I decided to retire that I found more time to write. So I got back to the project and changed many things with the plot. I wanted this first book to focus on Justice and that led me to decide on writing a trilogy.
So the first novel mainly serves as a presentation of the main characters: Joseph Quito and his partner Marco Tozzi, both inspectors for the "Sûreté du Québec", our provincial police here in Quebec, Canada. Both men try to solve the triple murder of Nadine Delma, a bitch who was a pro at conning her lovers and getting money from them. Revenge, jealousy and hatred are what cause her death but the intrigue is hard to solve because of the three different causes of death occurring on the same day...
The solution of this crime isn't what I was focusing on. I put more emphasis on my main character's need for true Justice - getting the really guilty one to pay for his or her crime. So it is a moral and psychological combat going on in Joe Quito's head all the time. Too bad the book is in French only at this time... Or too bad the interview has no French option.

Six dossiers non-résolus et une affaire en cours hantent l'inspecteur Joseph Quito et son acolyte Marco Tozzi. Mais un riche homme d'affaires offre une solution de rêve pour que ces pédophiles paient pour leurs agissements immondes, qui autrement auraient échappés à la Justice.
Un tribut à la Justice, mettant en vedette deux policiers québécois qui enquêtent sur le triple assassinat de Nadine Delma. La victime a été empoisonnée, poussée d’une mezzanine et elle a aussi reçu une balle dans la tête ! La Delma était une mégère détestable ayant profité de plusieurs hommes riches et rendu bien des femmes jalouses. Les suspects sont donc nombreux!
Un polar à lire absolument!
I love dogs. I love to read mysteries. I very much enjoy sexy stories and above all I like stories that focus on true Justice, not just applying the law by what the book says, but really make guilty people pay for their crime. I also like to see a female character act somewhat like a guy, investigating a situation in her own peculiar way. And I got all of that in "Unleashed"!
Great story, fabulous characters with the main girl being very special. I absolutely loved this book and look forward to reading the next ones in the series!
