Marie Havard was born in Beziers (France) in 1983 and she now lives near Montpellier, in South of France.She loves travelling and she spent a year abroad as an erasmus student at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Her trips to foreign countries are inspirational for her books (USA, Japan, Canada, New Zealand...).Writing has become a part of her life since she was young, thanks to a friend of her parents who was a poet.In 2005 we graduated in Modern French Litterature. She started to write her first novel, inspired by her experience in Scotland, and five years later, the book Les Voyageurs Parfaits is finished. She self-publishes it.She then works on a sensitive subject (child loss), she lives herself the tragedy her character is living in the book. Writing this new book is then all the more important for her, and she self-publishes Les Larmes du Lac in 2015.
- "I was totally fascinated by this book. It
leads us into the beautiful country of Scotland and its mysteries.
Including legends, historical events and explanations, without
forgetting anecdotes, this novel is full of surprises. I even had
goosebumps with everything that took place around the lake. The
underlying subject, grieving, is well dealt with: heartache, pain,
reconstruction, or at least an attempt to rebuild your life."
- "A fascinating book for a progressive immersion into a chilling universe." (L'ebookivore)
- "A story that is simultaneously moving and fantastic in the shadowy sense of this word. A beautiful background, legendary Scotland." (Amelie H.)
- "A dark, but captivating novel." (Chocolat Cannelle)
- "A touching and absorbing story." (Les Livres de Nancy)
- "If you're interested in the subject of this book, make sure to read this perfectly written story. [...] The construction of this novel is thorough, insidious, terrible and spot on. Bravo! I was expecting a different ending, more commonplace. Far from my representations of this subject, this novel fulfilled me. It's a refined, intelligent and pleasant read." (A la page des livres)
