Together with my late husband Jacques de Roussan—author, art critic, and historian—we founded a publishing company. In the first few years, we concentrated on art albums featuring Quebec artists. I formed a children’s book division in 2005 that emphasized and published first-time children's book authors.

Our books often received excellent reviews in Quill and Quire, Globe and Mail, and other major newspapers.
