“Are you born a writer, or do you become one? Is there a gene for ink in the blood – the blood of writers? Unable to shield themselves, taking it all on the chin, haemophiliac with words, writers have signed a survival pact with writing. I will provide you with a living – but you have to write!”

Thérèse Fournier lives on a ship between Paris and the Mediterranean. She publishes short stories in the half yearly review “Siècle 21, littérature et société” [21st century, literature and society]. She is involved in many initiatives aimed at bringing the shared history of both sides of the Mediterranean up to date. Her Arab trilogy –L’Olivier bleu, 2028, and Nador – was published by JC Lattès (Paris), Le Fennec (Casablanca), and Scali (Paris). Nador will soon appear on our screens and be published by Mirza Publishing, which produced the digital version of 2028.
