About Francois Lelord

Francois Lelord has had a successful career as a psychiatrist in France, where he was born, and in the United States, where he did his postdoc (UCLA). He is the co-author of a number of bestselling self-help books and has consulted for companies interested in reducing stress for their employees. He was on a trip to Hong Kong, questioning his personal and professional life, when the Hector character popped into his mind, and he wrote "Hector and the Search for Happiness" not quite knowing what kind of book he was writing. The huge success of "Hector, " first in France, then in Germany and other countries, led him to spend more time writing and traveling, and at the height of the SARS epidemic he found himself in Vietnam, where he practiced psychiatry for a French NGO whose profits go toward heart surgery for poor Vietnamese children. While in Vietnam he also met his future wife, Phuong- today they live in Thailand. "Hector and the Search for Happiness "is Francois Lelord s first novel, and the first in a series that includes "Hector and the Secrets of Love" and "Hector and the Search for Lost Time.""
