Joel Alexandre was born in Barcelona, and lives between this city and Paris, where he alternates his writing endeavors with a career as an underground musician and composer. In Paris, he is working on a new record with an indie folk band. La passion de Erzsebet (The Passion of Erzsebet, Columna, 2009) is in part autobiographical and has been his first work in the literary field.
As a teenager, he wrote short stories for a clandestine radio, much like the one where the main character in La Pasión de Erzsebet tries to keep afloat. His stories were so successful that the audience asked to hear them again and again.
When he was 18, he stopped writing and began travelling around Europe, working as a bartender and playing the piano at small clubs in France, Slovenia, Hungary, and Germany. He lived in Germany for a year before he started drafting his first novel.
Currently, he is working on his second book, Mátame eternamente (Kill Me Forever), which depite being based on a true story takes the black genre through extravagant routes, not too differently from David Lynch’s early films.
