Lorenzo Lunar (Cuba, 1958) was born in a marginal neighborhood of Santa Clara, where the first two novels of the Leo Martin saga are located.



He is also an excellent writer of short stories, which has earned him three times to conquer the Prize of Tales of the Black Week of Gijón (1999, 2001 and 2005). The first installment of the series Leo Martin, Que instead of hell find glory, was awarded the Novelpol II Prize, the First Brigade Award 21 for the best novel in Spanish published in 2003 and a special mention of the Dashiell Hammet International Award Jury (Semana Negra, Gijón, 2004). It was translated into German in 2005. Considered, as one of the greatest exponents of the “newest” of the Cuban crime novel, Lorenzo Lunar also directs the magazine Fantoches, dedicated to black and police literature in Latin America. He is also a great music lover, very present in his literary work.
