Back to the radio

RNE Desde la ventanilla. Mariano Fresnillo y Maria Jesus Cuesta

I love radio

I met Mariano Fresnillo the first time I went to Radio Nacional. We talked about “Los Piratas en Japón”, about art that can help and about disability in kids books. While waiting to go in the recording studio, he told me about his books and about a new project he was working on.

That project is a new book now. And an amazing one.

It is a book full of color, to show the world of those who don’t see those colors.

You can listen the interview (in Spanish only, sorry!):

Programa La Frontera RNE 16 Septiembre 2017

I hope you like it!


It’s here! It’s real! Los piratas en Japón, is the first book both written and illustrated by me. It is already published in Spanish and it will be published in English next June and this makes me very excited.

A hilarious story of a group of pirates who, looking for the treasure, get lost and arrive to Japan. It is recommended for people from 2 to 99 years old. You can already buy your own signed copy in my shop in this site, and shipping is free during Christmas or in the best Children’s bookshops in Spain (more info below). Thanks a lot!

Los Piratas en Japón - MariaJCuesta

Winner in the 6th Short story award

premio literatura mariajcuesta

The news I am writing about today, fills me with joy. Yesterday April 22nd, I had the great honor to be awarded as the winner of the sixth short story contest organized by the library Dragon Lector. The name of my story was “Don Quidai of the Galaxy”.

Although it is not the first competition I win, the last one was long time ago. I am very happy to have won this contest.

My work has been edited, and in addition to the award, I have received a hand signed copy of Don Quixote de la Mancha, with a nice personal dedication by Arturo Pérez, Reverte. Thank you!

And thanks a lot to all of you who are always supporting me. A piece of this award is also yours.

The adventures of Wink, Dink and Ink

Now available at Amazon.com, Suzanne Russell’s book. Drawings were planned by Suzanne, and created by me. It’s about triplets that are pretty, pretty naughty… Although the style of the illustrations was set in advance, I am proud with the results and I wish Suzanne a lot of luck with this first book.

You can find it at Amazon:
