Sarn Amélie

Author biography Sarn Amélie

Born in 1970, Amélie Sarn spent most of her time as a child climbing trees, reading, and dreaming of being a writer. While studying English and Spanish, she dabbled in different jobs: camp counselor, technical translator, caretaker for disabled people, journalist. Now she lives in Bretagne, where she stopped climbing trees but she's still passionate about reading and writing. She has written several children's books, including "Coupable d'être innocent" (Rageot), "Un Fantome très rigolo," and "La Nuit de la chauve-souris" (Milan). For the same publisher, she co-wrote "Le Cirque Patatrac" and "Un petit garçon trop pressé," under the pen name Méli-Marlo. She also worked on the famous animated feature "The Triplets of Belleville." In 2002, she published her first novel, "Elle ne pleure pas, elle chante" (Albin-Michel). The series "Nanami," illustrated by Nauriel and published by Dargaud (Europe Comics in English), marked her debut as a comics scriptwriter, alongside Éric Corbeyran.
