Former editors

  • Carmen Guillen

    Desde mi temprana juventud, los libros han sido mis compañeros constantes, ofreciéndome un refugio en sus mundos de tinta y papel. Como opositora, he enfrentado desafíos y competencias, pero siempre he encontrado consuelo y sabiduría en la literatura. Trabajando como monitora educacional, he tenido el privilegio de guiar a jóvenes mentes hacia el amor por la lectura, inculcando en ellos el valor de un buen libro. Mis gustos literarios son eclécticos; me deleito tanto en la riqueza de los clásicos como en la frescura de las nuevas voces que emergen en el panorama literario. Cada obra es una ventana a una nueva perspectiva, un nuevo mundo, una nueva aventura. Aunque reconozco la practicidad de los ‘ebooks’ y la forma en que han revolucionado la lectura, hay algo eternamente encantador en el crujido de una página al ser volteada y el aroma sutil de la tinta sobre el papel. Es una experiencia sensorial que los ‘ebooks’ simplemente no pueden replicar. En mi viaje literario, he aprendido que cada libro tiene su momento y lugar. Un buen clásico puede ser un amigo fiel en tiempos de reflexión, mientras que una novedad literaria puede ser el chispazo que encienda la imaginación. Sea cual sea el formato, lo importante es que la historia nos hable, nos transporte y, en última instancia, nos transforme.

  • Alberto Legs

    Soy un narrador de historias, un explorador de mundos tanto reales como imaginarios. Mi pasión por la escritura comenzó desde muy joven, inspirado por la riqueza cultural y la diversidad de paisajes que he tenido el privilegio de experimentar en mis viajes. Como escritor de viajes y literatura, me he sumergido en las letras exóticas, buscando siempre capturar la esencia de cada lugar y cada cultura en mis obras. Como autor de ficción he publicado relatos premiados en España, Perú y Japón y el libro Cuentos de las tierras cálidas. En el camino de las letras, continúo aprendiendo y creciendo, siempre en busca de esa próxima historia que merece ser contada, ese próximo viaje que espera ser escrito. Con cada palabra, con cada libro, aspiro a dejar una huella duradera en el vasto mundo de la literatura.

  • Belen Martin

    As a freelancer and Spanish teacher, my life revolves around words and their power to educate and excite. Although I often feel that time to write is scarce, every moment I spend putting ideas on paper is deeply rewarding. My academic training at the Complutense University of Madrid provided me with a solid foundation in Spanish: Language and Literatures, and my passion for teaching was further strengthened after completing the Master of Spanish as a Second Language. In addition to my dedication to literature, my intellectual curiosity has led me to study Criminology.

  • Ana Lena Rivera Muniz

    I am Ana Lena Rivera, author of the intrigue novel series starring Gracia San Sebastián. The first case of Gracia, Lo que Callan los Muertos, has received the Torrente Ballester Award 2017 and the finalist award of the Fernando Lara Award 2017. I have been passionate about crime fiction since childhood, when I abandoned Mortadelo and Filemón for Poirot and Miss Marple, so after several years as a manager in a large multinational company, I changed the business for my great passion: The crime novel. This is how Gracia San Sebastián was born, the leading researcher in my detective novel series, where normal people, like any of us, can become criminals, even killing when life puts them in a difficult situation. I was born in Asturias, I have a degree in Law and in Business Administration and Management and I have lived in Madrid since my university days. From time to time I need to smell the sea, the Cantabrian Sea, strong, vibrant and dangerous, like the novels I write to you.

  • Lidia aguilera

    Soy una ingeniera con un corazón que late al ritmo de las narrativas y un alma que se deleita en los giros inesperados de las tramas. Mi amor por la literatura se encendió con la chispa de “El círculo de fuego” de Mariane Curley, una historia que me enseñó a soñar en colores vivos y a creer en lo imposible. Luego, “Toxina” de Robin Cook me sumergió en las profundidades de la ciencia y el suspenso, sellando mi destino como una eterna buscadora de mundos escondidos entre páginas. La fantasía es mi refugio, un lugar donde lo cotidiano se entrelaza con lo mágico, y donde cada libro es una puerta a realidades alternativas. No importa si es Young Adult o dirigida a un público más adulto; si hay magia, estoy allí. Pero mi pasión no se limita a la fantasía; también me siento atraída por el brillo de una pantalla que narra historias épicas, por los fotogramas de una película que captura la esencia humana, o por las viñetas de un manga que transporta a universos distantes. En mi blog literario, Libros del Cielo, comparto mis aventuras literarias, reseñando cada obra con la sinceridad de quien considera los libros como sus más fieles compañeros de viaje. Invito a todos a unirse a mí en esta odisea de palabras, a explorar juntos los confines de la imaginación.

  • Diego Calatayud

    Desde mi temprana infancia, los libros han sido mis compañeros constantes. Mi pasión por la literatura me llevó a obtener una licenciatura en Filología Hispánica y más tarde, un Máster en Narrativa. Ahora, como redactor especializado en libros y literatura, mi objetivo es compartir esa pasión con el mundo. En este blog, no solo encontrarás consejos prácticos y técnicas para escribir tu propia novela, sino también reseñas profundas y perspicaces de obras clásicas que han resistido la prueba del tiempo. Cada palabra que escribo busca inspirar, educar y entretener a lectores como tú, que valoran la riqueza y la belleza del lenguaje escrito.

  • Alex Martinez

    I was born in Barcelona in the last month of the 80's. I graduated in Pedagogy from the UNED, making education my professional way of life. At the same time, I consider myself an "amateur" historian, obsessed with the study of the past and especially of the warlike conflicts of humanity. Hobby, this one, which I combine with reading, collecting books of all kinds and, in general, with literature in all its range of possibilities. As for my literary hobbies I have to say that my favorite book is "The Godfather" by Mario Puzzo, my favorite saga is that of Santiago Posteguillo dedicated to the Punic Wars, my head writer is Arturo Pérez-Reverte and my reference in literature is Don Francisco Gomez de Quevedo.

  • María Ibáñez

    For as long as I can remember, books have been my most faithful companions. I am an editor specialized in literature, a storyteller through reviews and critiques that seek to unravel the essence of each work. My passion for the written word began in the halls of my hometown library, where each book I devoured prompted me to share my experience with the world.
