Hola Gabi,

La historia partió de algunos casos reales de largos secuestros en sótanos. Leí una noticia de un niño de cinco años que salió al mundo exterior tras haber pasado su vida entera en un sótano y la imagen me impactó de tal manera que quise escribir una historia que culminara con un momento parecido. Así nació 'El brillo de las luciérnagas'. (less)

I prefer not to tell the readers what they have to think about my characters, I just show what happened in the story, without my moral intervention. For me, my stories are stories that really happened, and my characters are real people capable of doing horrible and beautiful things at the same time, like real people do. As it happens in real life, not always do the good ones get a happy ending, nor do the bad ones get punished. Also, who is good?, who is bad?, who has the power to judge?, what punishment is enough punishment for a certain action?(less)
