Fabregat, Chiki

Chiki Fabregat was born in Madrid in 1969. Daughter of a children's story writer, she grew up listening to stories in which she and her brothers were the protagonists. She has been writing for as long as she can remember. Paradoxically, her interest in children's and young adult literature has increased as she has gotten older. For a long time she insisted on learning to write for adults, but her boredom got the better of her. She coordinates the LIJ department of the School of Writers, where she also participates as a student when time allows. She combines this activity with writing, encouraging reading with children and adolescents, teacher training, reading on the subway, Sunday soccer games and family meals.
