Victor Dixen, the son of a Danish father and a French mother, travelled throughout Europe with his parents as a kid; as an adult he has kept his taste for travels and storytelling. He has lived in Dublin, Singapore and Denver, drawing inspiration from these different places. He currently divides his time between New York City and Paris. He won the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire Jeunesse twice, in 2010 for The Strange Case of Jack Spark and in 2014 for Animale, The Curse of Goldilocks (Gallimard). His most recent work is the science-fiction series Phobos (Robert Laffont).
