Auguste Corteau

Dearest reader, my name, as you may have guessed, is Auguste Corteau.

I was born in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1979 and for the past decade, I’ve lived in Athens. You may find a short bio on Wikipedia and on the University of Iowa International Writing Programm website, where you can also read a sample of my latest novel, The Book of Katherine, translated into English. English-speaking readers may also check out The Runes of Norien, the first part of a fantasy trilogy, For This Is My Blood, a horror whodunit, as well as Shadow Slain, a literary thriller. And then of course, for the day-to-day madness, there’s my Facebook page, featuring daily updates on my thrilling misadventures and tons of other riveting stuff about my books and articles in Greek.

Enjoy life, read books and never avoid anything fattening.
