Sandra Enríquez Garzón

Sandra Enríquez Garzón (Quito, August 10, 1963) is an Ecuadorian writer. From a very young age, she developed a love for reading and the arts, often indulging in narrating stories of her own invention. Her adolescence went by almost unnoticed as she started working at a young age. Tired of the conventional lifestyle, in 1992 she made the decision to move to the Valle de Mindo in the northwest of Pichincha. Her childhood was surrounded by nature, rivers, and animals. Being a lover of good cuisine, she opened a restaurant that became a meeting point for many people for 14 years. At the age of 56, after having traveled through South America by land and seeking new inspiration, she wrote her first novel, “Espejos Rotos” (“Broken Mirrors”). The novel, set between 1830 and 1852, explores the theme of freedom in a historical context, woven into a story of love, magic, and humor. Enríquez has described it as “a story that reflects the years of the past in a broken mirror.”
