Pseudonym of French opera singer, songwriter, sculptor and author Jeanne Latrilhe (1865-1939); in the first capacity, she starred most frequently in French operettas, as well as maintaining a cabaret career, until 1904. Active as an author of fiction and nonfiction from before World War One, she published one tale of sf interest, Tel qui l'est! (1926; trans Brian Stableford as The War of the Sexes 2015), in which explorations into exorbitances of sexual Biology, along with a touch of Theosophy, generate quasi-comic narrative. [JC]
