Alicia Giménez Bartlett was born in Almansa, Spain, in 1951 and has lived in Barcelona since 1975. After the enormous success of her first novels, she decided to leave her work as a teacher of Spanish literature, to dedicate herself full-time to writing. In 1997, she was awarded the Feminino Lumen prize for the best female writer in Spain. She subsequently launched her Petra Delicado series, quickly making her into one of Spain’s most popular and loved crime writers.

“En mi profesión muchas veces me he preguntado qué es normal y qué no lo es, quién está loco y quién no. La mayor parte de las veces es difícil de determinar”
Alicia Giménez-Bartlett, Donde nadie te encuentre

“Mi sono iscritto a lettere perché mi piace leggere, analizzare i libri, scoprire autori sconosciuti, rivisitare i classici di ogni tempo e paese. L'insegnamento sembrava l'unica applicazione pratica della mia laurea. Ho anche pensato di cercare in altri settori: il mondo editoriale, il giornalismo, le scuole di scrittura. Ma per entrare in quegli ambienti bisognava avere dei contatti e io non ne ho. Sono stato uno di quei romantici che scelgono l'indirizzo di studi pensando solo ai loro gusti e alle loro inclinazioni, non a guadagnarsi da vivere. Devo essere tra gli ultimi imbecilli rimasti sulla terra.”
Alicia Giménez Bartlett

“Ho dei colleghi che sono flippati, sempre lì a controllare i profili, a vedere se piace questo o quello. Io, invece, me ne frego. Le cose vere succedono in giro, non su internet. Quelli che non gli succede mai niente è perché sono dei fessi, questa è la verità.”
Alicia Giménez-Bartlett
