La vida es mucho más compleja que un "Había una vez...", y un "... y vivieron felices para siempre". Los sentimientos, las sensaciones, los motivos, los errores, y la verdad son mucho más complicados y matizados. Esa es mi meta en cada novela: demostrar la complejidad del espectro de emociones humanas.
El punto siempre es: la verdad absoluta es evasiva y subjetiva. Y al final de cuentas, todos somos capaces de todo.

***
Escritor de novelas de suspenso, misterio y drama, sobre conflictos humanos del día a día, amor, odio, venganza, secretos y verdades, pero sobre todo la ambigüedad y ambivalencia de las personas.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
" Es muy desgraciado aunque creo que fue peor Don, sobre todo por intentar hundir a Evelyn después de lo que él ya le había hecho. "

Julie is 13% done with The Handmaid's Tale: Ordinary, said Aunt Lydia, is what you are used to. This may not seem ordinary to you now, but after a time it will. It will become ordinary.

“Lo peligroso no es creer sino depender de esa esperanza”
Marvin Menjívar, Una Novia Solitaria

“Si se piensan las cosas mucho, pueden convertirse en realidad.”
Marvin Menjívar, Una Novia Solitaria

“Invoca toda la fuerza que le queda o que debe fingir tener al salir del taxi y observa el lugar que solía ser su hogar, y ahora solo será un recuerdo incómodo y vergonzoso, un pasado al que ha debido volver para poder hacer las maletas para el presente sin ninguna idea de lo que le depara el futuro.”
Marvin Menjívar, Una Novia Solitaria

“Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.

Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men – friends, coworkers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much – no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version – maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain. (How do you know you’re not Cool Girl? Because he says things like: “I like strong women.” If he says that to you, he will at some point fuck someone else. Because “I like strong women” is code for “I hate strong women.”)”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

“The face you give the world tells the world how to treat you.”
Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects

“Sometimes I think illness sits inside every woman, waiting for the right moment to bloom. I have known so many sick women all my life. Women with chronic pain, with ever-gestating diseases. Women with conditions. Men, sure, they have bone snaps, they have backaches, they have a surgery or two, yank out a tonsil, insert a shiny plastic hip. Women get consumed.”
Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects

“Sometimes if you let people do things to you, you're really doing it to them.”
Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects

“A child weaned on poison considers harm a comfort.”
Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects
