Cesar Mallorquí (Barcelona, 1953) has lived and resided in Madrid for a long time. Given the profession of his father—José Mallorquí, the creator of El Coyote (The Coyote)—Cesar's vocation for literature was inevitable. He has enjoyed writing since he was a child and soon published his first story in a magazine. He studied journalism and worked on a variety of publications. For many years he worked in the creative side of advertising for various multinational agencies. Now he is a full-time writer, and has won numerous prizes, including the National Youth Literature Prize in 2013.
