I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1983. I did my undergraduate studies on Latin American and Argentinian Literature and Spanish and Literature Teaching at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). After graduation I worked for seven years as a High-School teacher. At the same time I worked as a cultural freelance journalist and wrote and published five books, two works of non-fiction: Los Lubavitch en la Argentina (Sudamericana, 2010), Que la fuerza te acompañe (Marea Editorial, 2012) and three novels: Rituales de sangre (Penguin Random House, 2014), Rituales de lágrimas (Penguin Random House, 2015) and Sangre por la herida (AS Ediciones, 2017). My area of interest is representations of violence in popular and massive Latin American literature from 1990 up to today.
