Cindy Van Wilder was born and raised in Belgium. Despite her name, she comes from the French-speaking part of the country (and therefore, French is her first language). Working as a professional translator, she enjoys writing challenges, such as writing her own version of fairy tales. This is how she came about writing the YA series Les Outrepasseurs / The Trespassers. The first book won the 2014 YA & Children award at the French festival les Imaginales of Epinal.
Cindy also enjoys discovering new literary genres, as illustrated by her novel, Memorex, a YA thriller shortlisted for the Prix Imaginales Collégiens and the French Blogger Award and her latest La Lune Est à Nous / The Moon is Ours which is a realistic contemporary YA novel. You can follow her on her blog or through social media where she enjoys chatting with her readers.
