How has New Brunswick influenced your work?

It is Acadian culture, I think, that has most influenced my work. As an Acadian, I imagine that it is easier to create and be inspired by my own reality. My immediate surroundings are what inspire me. At least, thatís what I believe!

What is your favourite New Brunswick book, and why?

I really like Antonine Mailletís work. I have also read Jean-Marie Nadeauís books.

What do you consider to be the highlight of your career so far?

The pleasure of presenting my childrenís books as storytelling shows for children.
