Born and raised in the vibrant city of Nantes, France, Céline de Roany was captivated by the world of crime fiction from an early age. She devoured the adventures of The Famous Five, Fantômette, and later, Henning Mankell and Elizabeth George. These literary heroes instilled in her a deep appreciation for the intricate plots, complex characters, and moral dilemmas that lie at the heart of the genre.
Céline’s passion for storytelling led her to pursue a career as a writer. Armed with a Ph.D., she now teaches international law at Griffith University in Australia. However, her true calling lies in crafting suspenseful tales that delve into the darkest corners of human nature.
As a member of the Louves du Polar collective and the Sisters in Crime collective, Céline is dedicated to promoting French-speaking crime fiction authors and fostering a vibrant community of literary enthusiasts. Her own work showcases her mastery of the genre, with her heroine, Céleste Ibar, embodying the strength and vulnerability of women.
