I was born July 23, 1950 in Namur, Belgium. I spent my childhood in Florenville, a charming village in the south of Belgium.
After a diverse educational background (others would call erratic!) I began studying civil engineering and then realized that it did not suit me at all, I studied Political Science and International Relations at the University of Brussels.
I love to travel which has led me to visit a significant part of our planet, favoring the discovery of other people and respect for local cultures. I had the opportunity to discover the United States, China, in most European countries, but also North Africa, a trip that remains almost as a nightmare for me.
I worked in many sectors including rural development and education. Since 1996 I work in the social sector, mainly focusing on literacy for low level skilled people. For over ten years I develop European projects in this field.
I came late to writing, I should say to the publication of my writings because I feel I have always written. In the Shadow of the Dragon is my first novel. Others are in preparation, in particular a thriller that will feature some of the characters from "In the Shadow of the Dragon."
After ten years in Brittany, I currently live with my partner in Bordeaux, a region very interesting in many ways
