Welcome to my world
Like Elan from my latest novel, 'The Ringing Rocks of Atlantis', I am sitting here at the beautiful and salty Salz River in the foothills of the Pyrenees, where I live together with my husband, Peter. I have always loved ancient history, especially when some of it is lost or misunderstood throughout the ages. Then I cannot help myself and won't stop researching until I get to the bottom of the enigma. Although I have always enjoyed writing, my professional career didn't start until 2011, when my first book, "White Lie, the Quest for the Forbidden Relic" was released. In 2015 it was followed by "The Eye of Ra", and now, the third book of my Time Travel Trilogy is finally on the market.
The historical thrillers I write are a way of sharing my findings with other seekers, while another way of sharing happens through my guided tours here in Occitania, France, or in Greece. The first thing on my agenda is to organize a group tour to Santorini on the theme of my latest book about Atlantis. This tour will be so very special.
As I am driven by intuition - whether I am writing or guiding - magic always happens. Perhaps because I don't have to remember anything, or because I am so passionate that my heart won't let me forget. We know deep inside what matters most. Truth about our human heritage is out there for us all to discover.
Since 2007 a fulltime resident of southern France, a.k.a. Cathar Country, Jeanne D'Août is not only an author, but also a tour guide in southern France and tour organizer in Greece, and a passionate photographer and producer at PanOccitania Media. Since early childhood she enjoyed studying the lost history of civilization, the first centuries of Christianity, Gnosis and Mysticism. With her adventure novels, which were published worldwide in English, she has already drawn many people to beautiful Occitania, France, with its many mysteries, forgotten history and stunning Lord of the Ring-like landscapes. In 2012 she was interviewed for a world famous TV documentary called "Himmler and the Holy Grail", giving her a page on IMDb. In 2019 she was involved as a guide for the successful History Channel documentary series 'The Lost Relics of the Knights Templar' (episode four). Again in 2020 she was part of the second series for History Channel, explaining several secrets at another mysterious cave. Jeanne has been a guest on many radio shows in Australia and the USA,and on a live TV Talk Show in Las Vegas in 2013. There are several interviews planned for 2021 and 2022, as well as a virtual book tour and a group tour to Crete and Santorini in 2022, which will be based on her novel about the Atlantis myth. In 2015, Jeanne became a member of the ITW (International Thriller Writers Organization). Following the advice of New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry, her first book - now renamed "The Forbidden Relic" - and its sequel, "The Eye of Ra", were published on Kindle eBook in 2016. The 3rd book of her Time Travel Trilogy, "The Ringing Rocks of Atlantis", was published in May 2020, both on Kindle and eBook.
