Born in 1962, I was movie-fed and I travelled the world before I set up in the South of France. I live with my family in a house which is out of sight and offers a sea view. I’ve been a copywriter in advertising during the nineties, guitar bass player, follower of martial arts, songwriter for a blues band.
I became an author of thrillers in 1996. My first novel was POUR ADULTES SEULEMENT.
My third one, LE DERNIER TESTAMENT, inaugurated a trilogy about the inquiries of the Zen profiler Nathan Love. It has been rewarded by the prestigious Grand Prix de Littérature Policière in 2005. My books have been translated in Italy, Spain, Germany, Rumania, Russia, China, South America…
Between 2012 and 2014, I’ve written a trilogy for young adults : LA BRIGADE DES FOUS. It is the story of six teenagers whose disabilities have been turned into exceptional faculties. They are secretly trained to be sent to special missions in the South of France. You can watch the trailer on this website.
At this time, I also write lyrics for O.C. Brothers, a blues band living in Nice. There is a new twist to my literary journey when I meet a strange veiled woman on a book fair. She has evidence that the Koran has been written by a Christian sect. I decide to investigate during months with the help of the theologian Guillaume Hervieux. We discover truths which have lied buried for 14 centuries. This work is the subject of my new thriller LA PORTE DU MESSIE where Simon Lange go after his origins which are linked with the true origins of the Koran! Some see this novel as a “Da Vinci Code about islam”, except here everything is true!
During our investigations, Guillaume and I have found a mistranslation on purpose in a chapter of an other Holy Book: the Bible. It concerns Genesis which has influenced our civilization, given the power to men and make women bend to their will. It is the subject of my following thriller including my heroine Sabbah Shahi that we met in the previous novel. L’ORIGINE DU MONDE comes out in may 2015.
I put an end to my « Manuscripts” trilogy with the quest for the famous Marilyn Monroe’s red notebooks. I imagine that I find Marilyn’s diaries next to a dead body in a burnt ranch in a desert of New Mexico. Based on all the documents I collected during my life on the goddess of Hollywood who has also become the most dangerous woman in the word, I relate how she managed to disappear in 1962 to start a new life. A credible and new assumption about her disappearance! Marilyn Monroe has been the best heroine of thrillers I could hope for. MARILYN X came out in may 2016 a few days before her 90th birthday.
