“The love of writing is to tend each word as pruning bonsai.”



Welcome to my world!

I am a woman of passion, desire and imagination.

I have many stories to tell, and the ability tell those stories.

An extraordinary life with many adventures has taught me much.

In this, my V L. Verdéaux blog/web page there are short stories (some philosophical, some not) and some funny or amusing pieces with amusing characters.

I have also included a brief overview of my first novel and later this year, my second.



In the Beginning

My first step to adult writing commenced with my academic research and studies.

The second step was light philosophical musings and short stories.

Now, my third and final step following my academic work are my novels which I like to think of as being very different from the general mainstream.

Originally, I wrote a university text book on Information Science Research and Digital Literacies of Undergraduate Students.  It has been published, however a more comprehensive version is available free.  Send me an email and I will provide the url.

However, I now write Women’s Literature, Contemporary, Popular Fiction and Crime.  It is suitable for the Commercial market.


My crime fiction novels have female protagonists.  They are based in Canada, Switzerland, the U.S.A., Australia and Spain.

The first novel is the beginning of a series of currently six books undergoing construction, writing and editing.   All five and following books in the series see the main characters being carried forward.

All my novels have a twist.  What is that twist?

Well, for the twist, you will have to read the first book in the Mauricé Rénoude series.

The Mauricé Rénoude series is a continuing story based on two characters: Mauricé and Olivia.  Continuing through the series of books, the principal characters remain with additional characters added and varying criminal adventures.  Although each book continues with the original story line, there are new adventures as Mauricé continues on her quest to find the bad guy and see him brought to count for his misdeeds.

The second novel is currently undergoing the editing process and the writing of the third novel has begun following the initial research.

Of the Mauricé Rénoude series, work on the third book has begun (July 2018) and the fourth novel commences approximately mid 2019.

So readers, welcome to to my site, a world of women, crime and criminals and, romance.

Oh, and I am looking for an agent.

My life, my world, V L. Verdéaux’s world, is full of adventure with my unique writing style and imagination.  In short, Inspiration!
