About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Craig Carlson first came to France as an exchange student in 1985 and instantly fell in love with the country. He never could have imagined that some thirty-five years later he'd be the owner of two American diners in Paris and be nicknamed "Le Pancake Kid" by the French. With a background in journalism, Craig studied cinema at the prestigious USC School of Cinematic Arts, using his experience as a screenwriter to pen his debut memoir, Pancakes in Paris: Living the American Dream in France. Craig and his husband Julien currently split their time between Paris and Los Angeles. Well, at least they try to. With two busy diners that can't be left alone for too long, their lives lean heavily on the Paris side, which, of course, is not such a bad thing, n'est-ce pas?
