Aceval was born of a French-Algerian father and an Arab mother in Tousnina, on the high plateau of Tiaret Province. Her childhood in Tousnina and Sougueur was permeated with the stories told by the women of the tribe of Ouled Sidi Khaled. She got a degree in nursing and then a master's in modern literature. She collects, retells, translates, writes, and transcribes stories from Algeria, particularly from the region of Djebel Amour and from women of the Maghreb. Her stories appeal to all ages. Children are interested in the tales and characters, while adults are interested in the ideas expressed trying to find a connection between the story and their own life. She lives in Creil, in France.

Writing Style

A large portion of her writing style is attributed to the oral heritage she had inherited from growing up in Algeria. She operates using a literary style known as a naked voice, which is a dialogue that connects between different cultures. She likes to focus on women in her stories, and how they are not simply objects. Examples of themes Aceval writes about include inequality of women, sexual triumph and finding identity. Aceval revolves her writing around the theme of love. Her style of writing can be described as smooth and simple.

Personal life

Aceval currently has four children.
