Marc Levy

Marc Levy has emerged as one of Europe's best-selling contemporary authors since the publication of his first book, If Only It Were True, in 2000. Levy has since written four more novels: Will You Be There? (2000), Seven Days For an Eternity (2003), In Another Life (2004) and, most recently, the sequel to If Only It Were True, entitled Finding You (2005). Together his books, all of which have been bestsellers, have sold more than six million copies around the world.

Born in France, Levy joined the French Red Cross at the age of 18, and worked for the organization for six years. In 1983, he came to the United States, where he lived and worked until 1991. Moving back to France, Levy partnered with two friends to form an architectural company. Within a few years, the company had grown to oversee the design and construction of hundreds of buildings, including the corporate headquarters of such companies as Coca-Cola, Perrier, Evian and the magazine L'Express.

In 1998, Levy began working on his first novel, If Only It Were True. Published in France in January 2000, it went on to become the top-selling French novel of the year and has been translated into more than 30 languages. The novel still remains on the bestseller lists in some countries, more than five years after its release.

In addition to his novels, Levy has completed a short film entitled Letter to Nabila, which he directed for Amnesty International as part of a new campaign for international communication. He is also working on several screenplays and has plans to direct his first feature film.
