A professional coach, a writer and a mother of two young adults, Isabelle Duval has always been a curious and an arduous student of human behavior.  She has spent the last seven years as an expatriate both in Taiwan and the United States, returning to the western world transformed by life’s hurdles and blessings.

Human interaction, the study of its intricacies, remains the central focus of Isabelle Duval’s attention and work. With Inhaled, she offers a very personal interpretation of a toxic dynamic in which two worlds collide, depicting with depth and attention to the emotional distress, the traps that we ourselves willingly, at times, place in order to grow.  In this romantic thriller, where sex is both used as a weapon and a cure, Isabelle exposes with great lucidity, the dangers of getting entangled with a person whose character has been poisoned by narcissistic and sociopathic traits.

Holding a Master in Management Sciences from Montreal’s Hautes Etudes Commerciales and certifications in both business and life coaching, Isabelle now writes from her hometown of Montreal where she lives with her cat, James.
