Marcel Grancher spent his youth and much of his further life in Lyons. He served in the army during the First World War and was severely wounded during the last months of the war. He travelled in the Orient before he started working as a journalist. He settled in Paris and published his first novel "Cerf soeurs drapiers" in 1929. In the 1930s he returned to Lyons and he founded Éditions Lugdunum and the journal "Le Mois".
During the Second World War he was involved in publications against the Vichy regime. After the war he settled in Paris again and he published further novels. Around 1950 he also wrote scripts for several movies. His later work concerns cooking and French wine.
