Javier Hernández (Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 1968) works as a lawyer and officer in the Local Administration.

He is a writer who analyzes society and he uses literature to tell us what is happening around him and which are its causes, because he has the ambition of wake up people’s consciousness. He thought that memory is the real society’s legacy and he reflects that in his novels: El fondo de los charcos (finalist of Benito Perez Armas Award in 2009), Los días prometidos a la muerte (Canarias Lee 2012 program) or El sueño de Goslar (Santa Cruz Ciudad leída 2013 program and Red de Biblioteca).

He has published Un camino a través del infierno with M.A.R. Editor. With this novel, Javier was finalist in the International Thriller Award L’H Confidencial 2013 and he got the jury’s Special Mention.
