Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I enjoy my solitude, albeit surrounded by my cats, and I’ve been living in the States for several years, where I’ve devoted myself to writing.
Reading, painting, sculpture and Italian opera are a few of my passions. They are not simply a hobby, they are also a true source of inspiration for me.
I served in the army for fifteen years, where I worked with numerous international agencies specializing in intelligence and the fight against terror. I took part in a number of missions to Africa and the Middle East. I’m currently security advisor for a large American firm.
I have already written 3 books in french language and I m currently working on the Red Fortress II.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Red Fortress which was a best seller in France
My stories spring from my real-life experiences and I hope you’ll feel that throughout this book and those to come. I primarily talk about places I know and scenarios, obviously fictional, which I know from experience could easily have been real.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not really but I guess every writer is different. I write only in the morning and make no notes and no research since I know very well all the places I m talking about.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I’ve always loved reading and writing. This passion has its roots in classical French, Russian and American literature. My favorite authors are Kafka, Nabokov and, a little closer to home, Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
What are you working on now?
The Red Fortress II since its a trilogy.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I create videos and promote my work on goggle paid ad via You Tube.With the free promotion I get new readers and the word goes around.
