Maite Carranza

Maite Carranza, born in Barcelona in 1958, studied Anthropology and subsequently taught languages and Literature. Her first work won the 1986 Crítica Serra d’Or Award and in successive years she won the Folch i Torres Award in 1987 and the Joaquim Ruyra in 1989. In the 1990s she took part in the creation of early Catalan television soap operas and wrote several series and films adapted for TV scripts which she still writes while teaching on master’s courses and scriptwriting workshops. Her literary production, however, has been constant and her books republished, translated and awarded but without a doubt, her most emblematic and most successful work is the fantasy trilogy The War of the Witches (2005-2007) a best-seller that was well-received by the critics, highly popular among her readership and translated into more than 25 languages.
