Andre Gouyneau was born in 1948 at Orleans in the Loire Valley. He currently lives in New Caledonia, an island in the South Pacific. An avid reader and lifetime dreamer, he eventually turned to writing. His work has a touch of the surreal and the ethereal about it. Often whimsical, always insightful, and thought-provoking, his work stems from his understanding of life and his love of the fictional characters and situations he creates.
