VJ Books Presents Author Javier Sierra!

Javier SierraJavier Sierra was born in the northeastern Spanish town of Teruel in August 1971. From an early age he was fascinated by the world of communications, conducting his first radio program in Radio Heraldo at the age of twelve. By the time he was sixteen, he was writing articles for the press, and at eighteen he was one of the founders of the international magazine A_o Cero (Year Zero). At the age of twenty-seven, he became editor of the well-known Spanish monthly magazine Mös Allö de la Ciencia (Beyond Science).

Sierra studied Journalism at the Complutense University of Madrid, and published his first book in 1995. He is the author of three books of nonfiction concerning historical and scientific enigmas, as well as four successful novels.

His first literary undertaking, La Dama Azul (The Lady in Blue, 1998), describes in detail the trances and bilocation of a nun from Soria, Marêa Jes's of greda (1602-1665), which Sierra attributes to her listening to certain types of sacred music and prayers of a very specific musical cadence, which provoked this mystical state in the mind of this "servant of God."

This first novel was the beginning os Sierra's vocation to use literature as a vehicle to solve some of the great mysteries of the past. The author meticulously researches these mysteries, thereby heightening their enigma, in his quest to arrive at a probable solution to the questions they pose.

Sierra has visited more than twenty countries, probing their mysteries. Egypt is the country he is most familiar with, having travelled there on many occasions since 1995. During his research in Turkey, he sought (and found) the controversial map of Piri Reis, a document offering definitive proof that Christopher Columbus arrived in America thanks to previous navigational charts made prior to 1492, which already reflected the New World in their routes. Another of Sierra's frequent destinations is Peru, where he participated in archaeological digs to find the lost Incan gold that Atahualpa hid when Pizarro arrived in Cuzco.

Sierra lives in Mölaga on the Costa del Sol, where he currently has seven more books in the works. His primary aspiration is to devote himself entirely to his two no longer secret passions: travelling and writing.
