Borgessaid: “Whatever fate, however long and complicated it may be, actually consists of a single moment: the moment when man knows for ever who is”. That moment — something similar to what the Japanese call satori— comes to everyone at some point in life: some are reached earlier, others later. Ana María Fontán writes since she was a child. Her path, however, led her in other directions. Today, grandmother and retired woman, she resumed that creative impulse and shaped her: she has just edited her first book, A Risk Idea.

Anne María is Argentinean, but has lived in Spain for 17 years. Writing is his first love, one who accompanied her throughout her life. So far, without however, it had never given it a prominent place because it felt insecure. Or, perhaps, because it just wasn’t the time. But today it is: today is the time of Ana María Fontán, writer.

Now I am already a grandmother and I am retired, I have more time and I have decided to take out go on my writing side,” he says. “I always had a restless, creative mind that ended up turning into the paper.”

About A RiskIdea

Your first book is a story of overcoming:

Nuria was a girl who was determined to fulfill the goal she had set herself. He set the bar at the top. He fought hard to achieve it. He attacked with all his strength and enthusiasm, but it was not easy and, in pursuit of a dream, he devised a plan that was nothing common between absurd and original. It was an idea that came up slowly and gave an unexpected result. Nuria, counting on the unconditional support of her brother and two friends, together with her iron will, boldness and some unconsciousness, left aside everything that could divert her from her path, even love. That road was full of truthfuls and thus put his life in danger. In his adventure, which begins in Betanzos and ends in Madrid, they intertwined intrigue, suspense, romance and an encounter with the Italian mafia.
