Montreal author Isabelle LaFlèche has been an inspiration to me for many reasons. One of which is her tenacity to let go of what she knew and leap into what she loved. All it took was a nudge from an unexpected stranger to remind her of the creative talent patiently waiting to be released. J’adore New York was first published in 2011 to great success and was immediately followed by her second novel following the journey of her protagonist with a conscious when it came to fashion and ample intelligence in J’adore Paris. Two more J’adore journeys have followed taking her readers to Rome and Montreal.
Tune into the interview where Isabelle shared the fateful meeting that changed her life in a matter of months, what it means to have it all, the gift and discovery of taking a risk and much more.
Quotes, books and other ideas discussed during the interview:
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”-Anaïs Nin
