I write short stories, micro-stories and opinion articles. So far I have published two collections of short stories "Behind closed doors" and "Love, let me sleep," the collection "marcòlic" the editorial Alpina. My micro blog can be found at J.Masó blog "La bona confitura" I also published a novel joint authorship "L'Artefacte" (The device).
My name is Carme Ballús, i am born in Granollers, near Barcelona. Literature has been my passion since inveterate reader as a child, as a teacher of literature throughout professional life as a writer of fiction lately. I do not know what my life would have been without books, I do not know nor imagine, but surely would have been tasteless. With them I learned a lot and I've had magnificently well.
The infatuation for reading led me to study philology. I watched with great respect for writers, those men and women who were able to create worlds and characters, I think that's why I have a hard time deciding me to take the step to show what I wore on and write my own stories. For fifty years I enrolled at the School of Writing the Barcelona Athenaeum, and the courses that I did and I had teachers who gave me the push to introduce myself to contests and to publish.
I imagine a story from what impresses me for whatever reason, then I hope to communicate something to others. Then. Writing is, I think, my most sincere act. Not necessarily biographic, but sincere, bare essentials. So my latest book of short stories, "Love, let me sleep," explores the vital area of aging, sometimes tender, often inhospitable.
