Mathieu’s interest in writing¬†began with poetry during her undergraduate years. Her¬†early poems and poetry reviews are published in fine literary journals. She is an honored first prize recipient of the Joseph E. Brodine Award presented to her by The Connecticut Poetry Society.
Fiction, she believes,¬†is the art form that allows her to¬†use¬†insights¬†and¬†creative imagination to put characters¬†on stage¬†and into their own¬†spotlight. Her novels are serious,¬†hopeful, and punctuated with humor. She enjoys¬†playing on¬†the¬†wide field¬†where¬†life’s mysteries and table of sorrows test¬†her characters’ courage to confront the truth of their lives, the intrigue of the journey building as they struggle to reconcile what is not desired.
