Félicien Champsaur (1858-1934) was a French writer and journalist born in Turriers in the Basses-Alpes near Digne, France.

His first novel was the roman á clef Dinah Samuel (1882), said to present portraits of Arthur Rimbaud and Sarah Bernhardt. He went on to write many novels, collections of journalism, and other works, including Miss America (1885), Entree de clowns (1886), Parisiennes (1887), Les Bohémiens (1887), Lulu (1888), L'amant des danseuses (1888), La Gomme (1889), and Nora, la guenon devenue femme (1929), a parody loosely based on the career of Josephine Baker. He died in Paris.
