Linda Hamonou

Born in November 1983 in Brittany, France, Linda Hamonou spent most of her childhood reading adventure and fantasy books, while exploring the folklore of Brittany.

With a growing interest in atomic and molecular physics she entered master course and finished her master degree in France before moving to Northern Ireland where she obtained her PhD in 2009.

Saving money during her studies and going to international workshop and conferences allowed her to travel in Europe and North America.

Being based in Japan allowed her to discover Asia, many trips in Japan, visit of Taiwan and Korea.

It took 6 months of hard work to complete the novel to an acceptable level for self publication, including a lot of rewriting, character development, illustration...

During that time she also managed to get the draft for her second novel "Attic mirror", participating and winning another writing contest. It took even longer for this highly perfectionist writer to prepare her second novel for self publication. And it took her more than two years to be satisfied with her third "Demon and fairy".

Her fourth novel, a detective story called "Harajuku Kiss" has been published in June 2014. She also has some finished and partially written drafts and a lot of ideas to work on...
