Francesc Blanco was born in the street Poeta Cabanyes, in Barcelona, in 1965.
He studied Economics at the University of Barcelona.
He has a long career in the fields of business, consultancy, and financial auditing, with executive positions in multinational firms.
One warm evening of July, 1977, he started reading A Hundred Years of Solitude. After the first few lines — where Gabriel García Márquez described Macondo and introduced the Buendias —, he decided he wanted to be a writer some day. Thirty years later, he took a professional turn: he left Madrid — the city where he had been living —, returned to Barcelona, and became a freelance consultant, thus being able to finally make both activities compatible.
