I once promised that if I came out of poor health, I would write a book to make people smile: ON PETS AND MEN. VAGUE SOUVENIR is about a French-American couple forming during WWii. CRIMES OF THE BALANCE SHEET is about friendship. I had three lives, one in Belgium where I was born and became a Pastor and Civil Rights activist (1940-1971), one in France as a scientist (1971-1998) and one in the United States as a happy mom re-united with her children and sweetly retired. I also published in French a novel, 50 short stories for children and a political book illustrated by Virginia Leirens (a companion of Chagall).
