Annie Hausen (4 August 1926 – 22 April 2020),[1] known by her pen name Catherine Paysan, was a French writer. She won the Grand prix de littérature de la SGDL for her lifetime’s writing.

The daughter of Auguste and Marthe Roulette, she was born Annie Roulette[2] in Aulaines in the Sarthe department of France. She attended a lycée for girls in Le Mans from 1938 to 1939 and then the boys' lycée (now the Lycée Montesquieu [fr]) from 1939 to 1945 while the girls' school was being used as a hospital. She taught at a collège in Paris, where she met her future husband, a Hungarian; after her marriage, she retired from teaching and returned to her native village.[3][4]

She published several novels, five autobiographical works, two collections of poetry and two plays, and adapted several of her works for film.[3] In 1977, she received the Grand prix de littérature de la SGDL for the whole of her work.[5]

Paysan was named an Officier of the Legion of Honour in 2011.[6] She was also named a Knight in the French National Order of Merit.[4]
