"Because I intend to write stories I would like to read, I always fall in love with the hero."
Françoise Bourdin was born listening to opera. Her parents, both opera singers, helped her to develop an appreciation for strong characters and destinies, and for the music of words. As a teenager, she discovered horseback riding and it became her exclusive hobby. She dedicated her teens to this passion and to reading the works of classical authors that she discovered in her father's huge library. Bourdin started to write short stories when she was very young. Her first novel was published by Editions Julliard when she was only twenty.
Writing became the most important thing in her life and her second novel, two years later, was adapted for TV.
