Relatos Sanadores – Editorial Gotas de Luz
“The dreams breakers” is a story I wrote. A boy dreams about what he will be when he grows up. But apparently, no job is good enough for those around him.
I sent this story to the Literary contest organized by Publisher Gotas de Luz and… my story won and has been included in the “Stories that heal” book (only in Spanish yet, sorry!).
Diploma Maria Jesus Gotas de Luz 2017 Relatos Sanadores
This book includes a lot of wonderful stories for children and teenagers (from 10 years old), and has the mision to heal a lot of them. This makes me really happy and excited.
If you want to get one, you can find it here. The revenue from the book is being donated to the Foundation Puente Gotas de Luz for patients with Alzheimer and other mental diseases.
If you already have the book and have read my story, I would love to know your feelings. Just write down a comment or send me a line by email or social media.
Thank you to all of you that are already telling me about it.

The book for adults “Desde la ventanilla” has been launched.
Written by Mariano Fresnillo, and illustrated by me, this book takes us to the exciting, funny, emotional and moving adventures of a blind man that sells lotery in Spain.
We hosted 2 launch events, the first one in CEU with more than 90 friends. Carmen, Richi, Javier, Nieves surprised us and Mariano moved us. And bar Abril brought chocolate with churros to share.
The second event was hosted in the ONCE auditorium, and more than 100 friends came to share the evening with us, including a few dogs.
Here you can see some pictures.
You can get the book in the usual online libraries, or here in my shop
and I will send it to you signed. 😉
I hope you like it!
Today, I received the literary prize “El Torreón”, in Las Gabias, Granada. My story for adults “Sed de venganza” was selected among 322 stories.
I have had an amazing literary evening, where both the principal and her team support culture and literature. And all the attendees were really supportive. Thanks a lot!
Let me share a few pictures of the evening.

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!):

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.
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.
