Sophie Bienvenu

Writer

Screenwriter author Sophie Bienvenu is over thirty but less than forty. Around thirty-five, you burn. She grew up (but not so much) in France, and has been living in Quebec since 2001. She has worked in various professions before devoting herself fully to writing novels and scripts, which gives her the official title of author and could, lets say,”fuck you” to all the people who told her that she was going to miss her life if she did not have her baccalaureate. Since she is no longer a paradox, Sophie gives many conferences in schools, CEGEPs and universities throughout Quebec and Europe, and she really loves it.
