Quién es Patricia Luna (Who is Patricia Luna?)
Stella Maris, 2015, 310 p

Patricia, divorced mother of two children by different fathers, receives an unexpected proposal in these times of crisis - illustrate the new work of the author of an erotic trilogy that has been a worldwide bestseller. Economic conditions are astonishing, but the pace of work is bizarre, five weeks locked up with another illustrator and five translators, without any communication from the outside. Their goal: have the book ready for its international launching without alerting their competitors. She accepts without hesitation due to her precarious employment status, unaware that this decision will be the opening of a series of events that will mark a turn in her life.
Dotted with a corrosive sense of humor and through a thrilling plot, this novel with a female tone covers topics like love, partners, children, women today, fashion erotica and especially introduces us a woman rather different from the stereotypes that nowadays constrict women until turning them into caricatures.

What would become of your life if you wer commissioned to illustrate the next 50 shades...?

Diario de una madre imperfecta (Diary of an Imperfect Mother) Humor-Women
Viceversa, 2010, 192 pp

Everyone thinks it but no-one says it: motherhood is nothing like the serene paradise it's always sold as. Let's not fool ourselves: motherhood, though it brings happiness, is marked by uncomfortable pregnancies, postnatal difficulties, an ongoing sense of chaos, and a lack of sleep that can be caused either by cramps or by the baby's never-ending crying. And you'll probably be rushing everywhere as well—whether it's to the supermarket or to school or the doctor's, or even, who knows, to work...

La casa de cristal. Diario de una corresponsal en La Habna
Rey Lear , 2009, 216 pp

En el otoño de 2000 la periodista Isabel García-Zarza se incorporó a la delegación de la agencia de noticias Reuters en La Habana. Durante los cinco años que permaneció en ese destino, escribió un diario donde detallaba la vida cotidiana de una corresponsal bajo el régimen de Fidel Castro. La ilusión inicial de residir en un paraíso del Caribe se va transformando paulatinamente en angustia. El poderoso aparato policial castrista observa cada uno de los movimientos de sus ciudadanos, condenados a vivir en una casa sin paredes, desprovistos de la mínima intimidad. La casa de cristal es un testimonio desgarrado de la falta de libertades que impera en Cuba, de la miseria económica que soportan los ciudadanos, de las desigualdades entre la población civil y los dirigentes próximos a Castro, de la cursilería dialéctica de la propaganda con que abruma el Régimen. La mirada de la autora, a veces ingenua pero siempre independiente, choca constantemente con los muros de una dictadura que agoniza al mismo tiempo que su Comandante, aunque que se resiste férreamente a desaparecer. En palabras del escritor Jorge Edwards, autor del prólogo, García-Zarza narra la contradicción de un país «que es dulce por fuera y muy amargo por dentro»
