“I write books about intelligence and I swear a lot.”
Isabelle Bauthian was born in 1978, in the eastern suburbs of Paris. After majoring in environmental biology, she became a press officer in French research institute CNRS but soon had her first graphic novel published by Dargaud Editions. She is now a full-time novelist and comics writer, dependably drawing on a combination of colorful characters and global social issues. She also works as a translator and occasionally writes for magazines and audiovisual productions.
She lives with her partner and their two young boys in a small village in the East of France. In what scraps of free time she can find, she likes to expound on the benefits of critical thinking, practice climbing and mindfulness meditation, and engage in moderately successful geocaching trips. Ever a bit of a science geek, she hopes to reconcile rationality and emotion in her books.
