I’m a Cuban American writer born in Havana in 1969. I write because I need it. If you want to know why, ask me, I rather explain it to you while getting to know you. I like to keep it simple in my stories since I think that the most complicated things in life can be explained in a sentence or with a look. I hate rice soup, self-help books, and injustice. I also hate a bunch of other things (writer’s fundamental job is to be opinionated and hate stuff to bring balance into the Universe), but I like to focus more in what I love: my family, my friends, and music. I would like to win the Hans Christian Andersen award before being super old and incapable of dancing all night long to celebrate.
