Javier Moro (Madrid, 1955) has worked as a researcher for various books by Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collins. As co-producer and screenwriter of the films Valentina and Crónica del alba, both based on the work of Ramón J. Sender, he spent six years in the United States developing projects for the screen and television and worked with such directors as Ridley Scott. He is the author of Senderos de libertad (Seix Barral, 1992), El pie de Jaipur (Seix Baral, 1995), las montañas de Buda (Seix Barral, 1998), Era medianoche en Bhopal (2001), in collaboration with Dominique Lapierre, and El sari rojo (Seix Barral, 2008). His novel, Pasión india (Seix Barral, 2005), the story of a Spanish dancer who married the Maharaja of Kapurthala, has been one of the great critical and sales successes of recent years, both in Spain and, through translation, in other European countries.
