The author, born in Nantes, France, in 1971 and the mother of 3 children. My son was diagnosed with dyslexia 3 years ago and didn’t like to read. I decided to write books dedicated to him and to children between the ages of 8 and 11 years, in hopes of inspiring children to love reading.
Writing for kids with dyslexia is not only a matter of using a special font and a dedicated text layout to mitigate some of the issues that dyslexics experience when reading. I think it is very important to adjust my style as well. Furthermore, most of my stories are designed for dyslexic children who like sport adventures, unexpected discoveries and characters with an unbridled imagination. I want to create a world which makes them feel at home so that reading will be a pleasure for them.
My first novel, Where Is Archimedes?, described a bilingual and bicultural child.
In A Fiery Imagination, I’m inviting my readers into the world of a dyslexia and to be inspired by Albert Einstein.
