I was born on December 31, 1995 in Ourense. I’m a timid girl who always takes her blushing cheeks with her wherever she travels. One morning, two years back, I realized I needed to pick up a pen and paper and give life to those thoughts that wouldn’t let me sleep. Writing is, in a certain way, tending to the wound, because it will never close completely, it is always open, and at one turn of the corner it may overtake us.
I am everything you read. We all have a story, and a small part of mine is in these pages. Here you won’t find poetry: you will find feelings. Hopefully you’ll see yourself reflected in some corner, because I’m sure we’ve all passed through the same thing at some stage in our lives.
Hush You With Kisses, the first book by Alba Vázquez – The Girl With the Bangs – offers reflections on love, lovelessness, self-love, self-esteem, and insecurities.
