About Patenting Destiny

Although some individuals seem destined to wear magical shoes that lead to winning races and waltzing gracefully under friendly stars, existence –even at its best– is a dance with death, for eventually we will all wear those shiny black shoes –or are they fiery red ones?– that lead us powerless and limping –or perhaps racing fearlessly at full speed down the homestretch.


About Charo González Casas

Born in Madrid, she realized her passion for writing at a young age. Her teachers suspected her of plagiarizing from books due to her unusual command of language. She began publishing in GRATIX, a magazine dedicated to the Movida Madrileña, under the pseudonym Mary Glup. She studied journalism and playwriting, she has been an editor in various publications, and a short story writer and columnist under the pseudonym Violeta Bala.

As a playwright she has written various works that have premiered in Europe, America and Africa. The Castaway’s Message is her first novel. She wrote it at night, while her children were sleeping.
