Bondoux was born in 1971, in the
region surrounding Paris, where
she still lives today with her
two children. She studied Modern
Letters at the University of
Paris XNanterre, and during her
education, created writing
workshops for disadvantaged
children, for which she
eventually received the Prix
Fondation of France.
After having done some theater, Bondoux joined the editorial staff at Bayard Presse in 1996. There she worked on Jaime Lire, a literary, educational publication for children, and in 1998 participated in the launch of a new kids magazine titled Maximum.
She retired from journalism in 2000 in order to devote her time exclusively to writing, and is the author of several childrens books, including The Destiny of Linus Hoppe, a futuristic thriller, and The Second Life of Linus Hoppe, which were both published in the USA and UK in 2005.
