Cristina Muñiz has been a practising lawyer since 1989. After receiving a grant to spend a short time with a French law firm, she has regularly revisited the Gallic country. For a number of years she was responsible for the Law Department of a major Spanish multinational, with whom she travelled to many of the main European capitals. Her love of writing brought her to begin this novel a number of years ago and with which she persevered in spite of the scarce amount of time left to her by her work and familial responsibilities. Now the work has finally come to fruition after years of development and rigorous research.
