Claire Keefefox

Claire Keefe-Fox was born in Italy of French and American parents and grew up between Europe and the USA, however, she always felt a special affinity for Asia. Her love affair with Thailand began when she saw a replica of the Bang Pa In pavilion at the world expo in Brussels and she has been coming to Thailand almost every year since 1975. She has written three novels in French and one in English, Siamese Tears. After serving for four years as director of Alliance Francaise for Thailand, she returned to university in Paris to complete her degree in Thai language and studies, constantly trying to deepen her knowledge of the country which she feels is her second home, and now divides her time between France and Bangkok.
