The anthology explores a wide range of emotions and perspectives in the wake of a global pandemic.


A timely and impactful slice of humanity that encompasses love, loss, anguish, hope, and the strength of the human spirit.


My name is Sophie Buchaillard.  I publish short stories and essays looking at identity and distorted perspectives.

My debut novel THIS IS NOT WHO WE ARE is  a historical fiction about the responsibility of the Western media when reporting foreign conflicts, and the challenges faced by a family torn by genocide to keep on living. The novel explores the themes of social fragmentation, genocide, journalistic integrity and appropriation, as well as the burden of guilt, silence and the power of forgiveness.
