Writing experience

My first professional job was an article about thalassotherapy that was published in Fréjus - le magazine #8 in July 1993.

Fréjus is the name of a city in the south of France near where I lived at the time and I got a gig writing pieces for this official city-sponsored publication.

It was a short stint, however. I quit after the editor screwed me over for political reasons -- I had written an article about a private school which they scrapped in favor of a piece about the competition: a public institution financed by the mayor's office.

What rubbed me the wrong way most of all though was that they never told me they were working that angle and pulled my story out without letting me know. So I only found out about it after the issue was released. Not cool.

After that bad experience, I decided to stay clear from politics and thus focused more on my passions: genre and entertainment publications.
