Maiwenn Alix trained as an engineer. She’s one of those irritating people who switch from one passion to another – from the most classic to the most outlandish – with the changing seasons. But some things are permanent features: surfing, cooking, music and of course, writing. In Real Life - Déconnexion is her first novel. Today Maiwenn Alix lives in Casablanca, Morocco, but she often returns to her native Brittany or, for the last few years, to Geneva.
