He writes both for adults and children, and he also acts as a scriptwriter for TV and cinema. On the children’s literature field, his major works are Los perfectos and Mi hermano el genio, with which he also achieved the Edebé award in 2007 and in 2010.

He has recently obtained the 2014 SGAE Award for children’s theatre plays with the work, Un monstruo en mi país, a tale as a moral fable about racism, inequity and social exclusion.
