GISÈLE BOURGEOIS was born in New Brunswick, Canada in the city of Moncton where she lived until she was seventeen years old. She studied languages and social sciences at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton and went on to achieve a Master of Arts degree in Spanish Literature from New York University. She worked mostly as a teacher and a translator with occasional attempts at entrepreneurship which didn’t work out. She hopes to continue writing in the future and wishes she had begun to write earlier. She has lived in Montréal, New York and London but has spent most of her adult life in Madrid, Spain where she married and had a daughter. Although she loves her adopted country, she still feels very attached to Canada and has recently built a small house in Shediac Bridge, New Brunswick where she spent all the summers of her childhood.
True Identity is her first novel.
