Hi! I’m Laure.
Writer, daydreamer, dragon-rider & music lover.
A little bit about myself:
I’m married and I live in the South of France, where the weather is much better than in Paris. I’m a high school math teacher. Books are one of the most important things in my life. I’m also a travelholic, so I’m always planning my next trip. My dream is to go to Japan someday. I speak French, English, Italian, a little bit of Spanish, and I’m learning Japanese.
What else do I like? I enjoy art, cinema, and Japanese culture. I love dark chocolate and the scent of mimosa. I drink tea in large quantities. I hate ice cream . . . probably because I hate anything cold.
Last but not least, I have a lovely Angora cat, Singha (named after a Thai beer).
How did I end up being an author?
I wrote journals when I was a kid and always dreamed of publishing my own books, but it took me many years before I actually started writing one.
I eventually did in 2010 at Shanghai International Airport, where I had to wait ten hours for my flight. Shadow was born.
One year later, I received a call from one of the publishers I had sent my manuscript to: they loved my novel and were willing to publish it!
Since then, I have published 5 novels with them and I recently decided to become an indie author as well, since I want to experiment complete freedom with some of my novels. I work with professionals to edit the manuscript and make the cover because the quality is very important to me.
I’m French (although both my parents are of Italian origin) and I like writing in French as well as in English. I love the English language, which I first learned in school and also by watching movies and TV series and by listening to music.
Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to live in an English-speaking country, but I’ve traveled to the US, the UK and Canada quite a few times. In July of 2015, I realized one of my dreams when I traveled the East Coast from DC to Boston through NYC for 4 weeks on my own. It was an amazing trip!
Now I hope you’ll enjoy my stories as much as I loved writing them 🙂
