Karen Chacek in an inhabitant of parallel worlds and mind-stories. Born in Mexico City on a Saturday in June, she spent her childhood devouring comics, watching television, and reading books of fables. As a teenager, she discovered science fiction, music videos, and movies. Her fascination with the written image led her to study film. She now works as a screenwriter and author and was a fellow of the Sundance Film Institute in 2001 in Mexico and Barcelona. She has published the collection of short stories Parallel Days (2006) and two children’s books, including Conspiracy Girl, originally published in Spanish in 2009, and has several pieces published in anthologies. She loves long walks in public parks, cloudy skies, insects, cats, underground passages and dystopias.
