I have a “canteen” where I have my habits… but I keep it for myself

Two projects are underway for the coming year: the publication of a thriller in early 2023 by Vibration’s publishers and the writing of a novel that will deal with injustice, anger and the passage of time. A writing that will take more than a year and which is already a source of pleasure for me.
