I've always enjoyed telling stories as well as reading them. I would tell stories to frighten my adolescent friends during our rambles on the moors of Brittany, then later on, stories of brave heroes and princesses to my children and nowadays stories of fantasy and suspense. I trained as an engineer and my job takes me all over the world, which entails many Atlantic crossings and endless waiting in airports for connecting flights, not to mention the occasional strike!Writing has become for me a way of turning these long hours of tedium into moments of pleasure. Cranking up the suspense, stretching suspension of disbelief right to the limit, giving life to characters who will be with me for weeks or even months on end and who will then bring you right into the heart of the story. Encouraged by a few friends and with the more than active support of my wife, we have made full use of technological advances to make my novels available on Amazon--in the hope that you will enjoy a moment of relaxation while reading them.You can also find me here:http://jacquesvandroux.blogspot.fr/https://www.facebook.com/vandroux I published my first novel on Amazon at the end of February 2012 and the second one in mid-April 2012. Both went into the top 100 best-sellers in France in less than three weeks. « Les Pierres Couchées" (not yet translated) stayed in the top 4 for over 3 weeks and in the top 100 for more than 500 days. My third novel « Au cœur du Solstice » (Heart Collector), published in 2013 has also met with great success. My last novel « Projet Anastasis » was published mid november 2014 and has been #1 for more then 6 weeks.----J'ai toujours pris plaisir à lire ou raconter des histoires: histoires à faire peur quand, adolescents, nous nous baladions entre amis dans les landes bretonnes; histoires de vaillants héros et de princesses plus tard à mes enfants; et histoires fantastiques et à suspense aujourd'hui.Ingénieur de formation, je suis amené à me déplacer à travers le monde, voyages transatlantiques et connexions à n'en plus finir dans les aéroports, voire quelques grèves de temps en temps! Écrire est devenu un moyen de transformer ces longues heures d'attente en moments passionnants. Mettre en place des situations à suspense, plonger à la limite du fantastique, donner vie à des personnages qui m'accompagneront des semaines ou des mois et vous emmèneront ensuite au cœur de l'histoire.Encouragé par quelques amis, et avec le soutien plus qu'actif de mon épouse, nous avons utilisé les progrès de la technologie pour mettre à disposition mes romans sur AmazonEn ayant un souhait: que vous passiez un moment de détente en le lisant....Vous pourrez aussi me retrouver sur :http://jacquesvandroux.blogspot.fr/https://www.facebook.com/vandrouxJ'ai publié sur Amazon mon premier roman fin février 2012, et le deuxième mi avril 2012. Tous deux sont entrés dans le top 100 des meilleures ventes en France en moins de 3 semaines. "Les Pierres Couchées" est resté plus de 3 semaines dans le top 4 et plus de 500 jours dans le top 100. Mon troisième roman "Au coeur du Solstice", publié en 2013 a lui aussi rencontré un vif succès. Une belle reconnaissance des lecteurs qui m'a poussé à écrire davantage.Mon dernier roman "Projet Anastasis" a été publié mi novembre 2014 et est resté à la tête des meilleures ventes pendant plus de 6 semaines.

One of my weaknesses in literature is reading books by non-American authors. They bring a different outlook, a different landscape to my reading. I also love the language differences – it adds a richness that is often missing in the more mundane voice of ‘American English’. Heart Collector is tran...
