Craig Carlson

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 University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. He is the author of Pancakes in Paris: Living the American Dream in France, and he and his husband Julien currently split their time between Paris and Los Angeles.
