The Canadian-born author spoke to RTL's Béa Kneip about her new novel, "Irresistible Blending", in the latest episode of the "Lecture vun Heiheem" podcast.

Mary Carey’s first novel, entitled Irresistible Blending, is a blend of science fiction and psychological thriller. Set in the early 2000s, the story follows artist Eleonor Adams, who lives on a secluded commune in rural Vermont with her son, until she is plagued by unsettling questions and mysterious forces at work.

Carey, who was born in Toronto, has four children and has spent the last 30 years living in Luxembourg. In the interview, she reveals how she discovered a love of painting for herself, why she prefers to paint with words, and how a dream inspired her novel.

"Irresistible Blending" is published by Black Fountain Press.

Mary will be participating in the CNL reading journey on Thursday 16 June, at the Mersch Kulturhaus, where she will be performing a reading under the title  "Those Worlds That Haunt Us". The event begins at 7.30pm. For further details, consult the Kulturhaus website.
