Auguste Luchet was educated in Dieppe. In 1823 he travelled to Paris, looking for a literary career. After a miserable time he obtained a job as a stenographer at the Chambre des Députés. There he met several authors who enabled him to collaborate on the magazine "La Jeune de France".
He also worked as a journalist and took part in the revolution of 1830. This resulted in five years of exile in Belgium and at Jersey. After that he worked for several other magazines. In 1842 he was sentenced to two years of imprisonment for his novel "Le Nom de famille". He was defended by Jules Favre.
In 1848 he was appointed governor of the Château de Fontainebleau. He died in 1872 in Paris.
