Pauline Mai, born in 1987, grew up at the Tegeler See in Berlin. When the public library could no longer satisfy her hunger for books, she went out to see the world – and got stuck in France. There she learned to love the way of life, the rough sea coast and macarons. And this love lasts until today. Even though she now lives in Berlin, where she last worked as an editor, she moves to the beautiful neighboring country whenever possible.
