About this author

Lars Guignard is the author of the bestselling Zoe & Zak Adventure series and the Circuit series of novels.

Ever since attending high school in the Indian Himalayas, Lars has been an avid backpacker and traveler. After a stint spent circling the globe, he settled down long enough to attend the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. He then went on to work as screenwriter in the film and television industry.

After way too much California sunshine, Lars moved to the Pacific Northwest where he now devotes his time to getting rained on and writing books.

Lars can be contacted at his website ( He would love to hear from you.

Eric Guignard Hi Lars - nice to e-meet you. I appreciate connecting with another like-named writer and promoting the "GUIGNARD" name! ;) Where is your ancestry from? My Guignard great-grandparents and many relatives immigrated to the U.S. in the early 1900's from La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
