Despite his initial calling to be a musketeer, Frédéric Maupomé studied mathematics and became a teacher. His lessons were full of princesses and superheroes, and not so full of math, so he decided to quit education to write children's books. His very first book, Pirateries, was picked by the French department of education as recommended reading. He began writing comics in 2010 with Anuki. He lives in Toulouse with his wife, their two kids, his piano, and we'll not say how many swords.
