Small biography of Kaoseto

I’m an indie Basque Franco-Spanish fantasy writer. I’m fully dedicated to my writing ever since I finished, in 2014, my essay about the romantic Spanish poet José Zorrilla. I love telling stories and dream of making a living with it :)

Since I was a kid, I have always been a literature and fantasy fan: even before knowing the alphabet, I would spend hours imitating writing. Kids have strange habits! In my teens, I have been strongly influenced by reading works of authors such as Tolkien, Robin Hobb, Sean Russel, Salvatore, and George R. R. Martin. Thanks to all of them, I began writing my first sagas, either in French or Spanish, but they remained unfinished, and it was only with the Cycle of Shaedra that I finally decided to share my stories.

I support the free culture and free software: that is why all my stories are published under a free license (free as in freedom). In 2021, I created the Kaosfantasy project, dedicated to my libre writing.

I’m also an anime and manga fan! Mairimashita Iruma-kun, Barakamon, Mob Psycho 100, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, Gintama, Steins Gate, Serei no moribito, Toradora, Haikyuu!!, Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai, Kimi ni Todoke, Nichijou… and a lot more 😍
