About Lire

I was born in Lorraine, in France. Both my parents were professors. My father taught French and my mother was an English professor. The love for reading was inculcated in me right from an early age. My parents took me on holidays to England so I could learn to speak fluently in English! I was already fluent in French, my mother tongue, and also Italian, a language I picked up from my piano teacher.

About Recreer

I was born in Paris and raised there too. My parents were teachers; My father taught Math and my mother headed the English department of the local school. My parents insisted on two things – speak only French at home; speak only in English when away from home. They instilled the habit of reading in me when I was very young. I devoloped a passion for reading. Reading inspired me. It liberated me.
