This science-fiction novel for adults tells the story of a man who undergoes a memory transfer under conditions that science isn't yet able to explain. When André wakes up on a flight from Australia to Canada with someone else's identity, he finds himself in a very surprising and embarrassing situation. How will he manage to cope in the short and long term? A most unusual journey awaits him as soon as his plane lands. Sometimes the curtain between fiction and reality lifts up. Such a transfer may one day be possible thanks to progress made by science.

This is the story of a thirty-four-year-old man who has a heart transplant. He hears rumors that the heart he received belonged to a young woman who died in a traffic accident. He's intrigued and decides to investigate. He wants to find out more about the woman and her story. He gets caught up in the quest and becomes obsessed by it.

Despite the necessary anonymity and confidentiality regarding organ donors, he manages, through subtle inquiry and unlimited patience, to find her parents. He also discovers the cemetery where she's buried as well as her photo, her name, Irene, and her age at death, twenty-two. A surreal connection takes place between him and the deceased, and an impossible love story is born. He begins to have feelings for her. After all, it's her heart beating in his chest. Things become complicated when he learns she has a twin sister living somewhere in Africa, working with an NGO as a nurse. He decides to leave his life behind and go in search of Irene's twin. Once he finds her, their love, tinged with drama and passion, is both powerful and fragile. These unusual ingredients combine to offer them an adventure full of torment involving both stormy and sunny weather.

Currently in the midst of translating...



A novel about power, politics, religion and science in the future; a fight for global power, and the birth of new technology including an artificial deity. Originally written in Portuguese, I am translating its Spanish translation into English and the author then plans to turn my translation into an audio-book!


Brazilian flag


One of a set of four stories involving four sisters and hence four romances that take place in Leeds, London and Paris. Each story is a stand-alone and can be read independently. This particular love story starts with a text message not intended for the recipient...and well, I must admit, it does get a bit steamy towards the end! My challenge this time is its setting in Yorkshire. I will need to use British vocabulary and some choice Yorkshire expressions!


French flag


My first mystery - my favourite type of literature - for older adolescents. More will be revealed later as the plot thickens! However Amazon reviews of its Spanish version include phrases like these (and I am translating from the Spanish) “The story captives immediately ... very realistic ... well-defined characters...the action and suspense are very well written. You are transported ... Your heart will beat a hundred miles an hour and won't let up until the very last page.”
