Véronique Biefnot was born in 1961 in Colfontaine in western Belgium. After obtaining a degree in Philosophy and Literature at the Université Libre de Bruxelles and after further studies in Art and the Dramatic Arts, she embarked on a distinguished theatrical career that has seen her perform in the major theatres of Belgium, appearing more than forty times on stage in major roles in the works of such masters as Chekov, Molière, Giraudoux and Shakespeare.
Simultaneously pursuing a career as a television presenter and theatrical director, she has also undertaken several adaptations for the stage, as well as writing the screenplay for and directing a medium-length film, “Alme”.
Always versatile, she has also enjoyed success as an artist and writer, and since 2011 she has published three novels, along with a novel for young readers and a number of short stories that appeared in the literary magazine “Marginales”.
She is currently living with her husband and three children in the province of Walloon Brabant (south of Brussels).
