Elsa Devernois followed scientific and cinematic studies before finally turning towards a career as a writer for youth. For the past twenty years she has published, with various publishing houses, over 200 stories of all genres, sometimes tender, sometimes funny, for children from the age of nine months to fourteen years. Some of them have received prizes (the Picture Book Prize of Brive, the Bernard Versele Prize, the Michel Tournier Prize, the Bouille Prize of Readers). Others have been made into live shows for a young audience (notably in Japan). She finds her inspiration everywhere: in newspapers and through watching the people live around her.
She loves traveling and bringing her career to be discovered beyond the borders.
