Born in Montreal in 1962, Brigitte Caron began playing with words at an early age. She discovered theatre in CEGEP and pursued her studies at UQAM, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in dramatic arts, followed by a certificate and Master’s degree in creative writing. While studying at UQAM, Brigitte worked as a freelance writer in several fields, including for Croc magazine.

In 2002, Brigitte followed up with the sequel Le temps des amours lucides. Since 1992, she has been a professor of literature and creative writing at Cégep du Vieux Montréal.
