Hi! My name is Sara Herrera Peralta, I’m a writer and graphic designer. I was born in Jerez de la Frontera (1980, Spain), but I’m currently living in Cazals, a 600 inhabitants village in the South of France, where I’ve moved after living in several European countries, in cities as San Sebastián, Helsinki, Málaga, Paris, London or Toulouse.
I’ve published ten books of poetry, three of them prize-winning: the most recent is Hombres que cantan nanas al amanecer y comen cebolla / Men who sing lullabies at dawn and eat onions (La Bella Varsovia, 2016 – second edition). My novel, Arroz Montevideo / Montevideo Rice, came out in 2016 and was selected in the 31st edition of the Chambéry's First Novel Festival (France) as one of the best first Spanish novels of the year. My poems have been translated into English, French, Italian, Portuguese or Esperanto.
I’m the co-founder and content creator of the creative project Du bois à la maison and I’m also a proud mother. I am out to create and write about eco-living, arts, feminism, craft, promoting healthy eating and local production.
