Short biography
Madame de Villeneuve supported herself after being widowed at age 26 by writing novels and fairy tale romances for adults, some drawn from earlier literature and folk tales. Her 1740 tale "La Belle et la bête (Beauty and the Beast)" was later adapted by Madame Leprince de Beaumont. After she embarked on her literary career, she earned the friendship of many 18th century men of letters.
