More About the Author

Manuel Márquez-Sterling, born in Havana, Cuba, has lived in the US since 1960. He is Professor Emeritus of History at Plymouth State University. Before becoming a historian he studied law at the University of Havana in the 50s, where at graduation he received the Ricardo Dolz Arango National Law Award, the top University of Havana law student prize. His law practice in Cuba included serving as Public Defender and arguing a constitutional law case before Cuba's Supreme Court.

His publications include "Historia de la Isla de Cuba" (co-authored with his father, Carlos Márquez-Sterling), "Fernán González, First Count of Castile: the man and the legend" and "Carlos Márquez-Sterling: Memorias de un Estadista" (Carlos Márquez-Sterling: memoirs of a Statesman." He is also known for his acclaimed historical novels "La Cúpula" and "Hondo Corre el Cauto." The latter topped the Miami Nuevo Heraldo best seller list. An accomplished playwright, his works in that genre include "La Salsa del Diablo" (The Devil's Sauce), which won the Madrid-Miami Letras de Oro Award in 1993; and "Corneille's Dream," winner of the 1996 Southern New Hampshire University Spectrum Award for One Act Play.

Following the example of his grandfather (Manuel Márquez-Sterling [1872-1934]), the author writes a long running op-ed column for the (Spanish language) Diario Las Americas.
