Writing and Publishing in Cuba, a Career of Resistance

I used to dream of being a writer. I wanted to write everything ever since I became a teenager: Detective novels, romance novels, historical novels, erotic novels, everything.

Just like Juan Angel Cardi, Daniel Chavarria, Dashiell Hammett, Arthur Conan Doyle, Corin Tellado, etc.

I always put it off, but there was a voice in my head shouting: Write, write… I only wrote hundreds of handwritten poems in a notebook and I’d be embarassed to show them to anyone today.

It was many years later, in January 2016, when I found myself writing the first lines of a novel, I don’t know why.
