One of the most outstanding authors on the Spanish literary scene, Javier Sierra studied journalism at the Complutense University of Madrid, and soon started working for mass media in Spain. He published his first non-fiction book in 1995 and his first novel in 1998. Between 1998 and 2005 he edited the international monthly magazine Más Allá de la Ciencia, and directed his own TV show El otro lado de la realidad in Telemadrid, Spain.
The Secret Supper was Javier Sierra's first release in the United States and it instantly became a New York Times bestseller. It earned Sierra literary and popular recognition, and was selected as a finalist for Spain's prestigious Torrevieja Prize for the Novel. Javier has since published The Lady in Blue in the United States (which won the Latino Book Award to the best historical novel in English, published in 2007) and will be releasing his long-awaited follow-up to The Secret Supper, The Lost Angel, in October 2011.
