Portrait of Martine   de la Ferrière

Martine de la Ferrière née Péronne (b. 1926, Ile aux Moines, France) is a French writer who published several children's books, including the Zor Saga, a family autobiography (On n'a pas peur du noir, 2003) and two monographies about her grandfather, the visual artist Jordic (Jordic: un artiste à l'Ile-aux-Moines avant 1914, Blanc Silex, 2004, and Jordic: Biographie, Coetquen, 2009).

In her 'Lettres du Cambodge', she recalls in a novelized form the three years she spent in Cambodia with her husband Jacques Gaultier de la Ferrière, who was to become a leading French diplomat, ambassador and France representative to the Atlantic Council. Jacques de la Ferriere was distinguished with the Royal Order of Cambodia in 1950, and later on with the Légion d'honneur. In 2023, Martine de la Ferriere published another personal memory book, Prague comme dans un songe (Coetquen Editions, ISBN 978-2849934074)
