Biography[edit]

Nery Santos Gómez was born in Caracas, Venezuela on August 21, 1967. She currently holds a degree in Industrial Relations from the Andrés Bello Catholic University (1989) and a master's degree in Literary Creation from the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in San Juan, Puerto Rico (2016).[1] She has stood out primarily as a result of her stories.[2]

Books published include Hilandera de tramas (2012), Lazareto de Afecciones (2018), and Al borde de la decencia (2019).[3] Other stories have been published in different anthologies internationally. Gómez has participated in the "Palenque" anthology, winner of the 2014 Puerto Rican PEN Club Literature Prize, with her story: Hacinamiento.[4][5][6]

She was a finalist, published in the Bovarismos International Women's Narrative Award 2014 contest in Miami with her story: Desde mi balcón. Moreover, she was among the winners of the Puerto Rican Writers' Guild "Entre Libros" short story competition in May 2016 and was published with her story: El mundo entero. Gómez was part of the Board of Directors of the Writers Guild of Puerto Rico in 2013 and 2014. She participated in the Borinquen Writing Project at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón where she obtained the degree of "Writing Consultant”. She is currently a full member of the Colombian Academy of Letters and Philosophy of Bogotá, Colombia.[7][8][9][10]

Gómez's book Lazareto de afecciones was chosen by El Nuevo Dia as one of the best books of 2018.[11][12] One year later, Lazareto de afecciones won three awards - Best Collection of Short Stories (1st place), Best Latino Fiction Book (2nd place), and Best Popular Fiction Book (2nd place) - at the 2019 International Latino Book Awards, ILBA.[13][14]

Gómez's most recent book, Al borde de la decencia was announced as the winner of the 2019 International “Anaïs Nin” Literature Prize by the Spanish Sial Pigmalión Publishing Group in November of that year.[15][16]

In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Gómez served as the coordinator for the anthology "Cuarentena literaria. Poemas y relatos que escaparon al encierro", a compilation of poems and stories written by forty authors from ten countries and four continents (North America, South America, Europe, and Africa) in quarantine.[17][18][19][20]

In 2022, she was coordinator of the anthology "Frankfurt: territorio literario", presented at the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2022 as a tribute to the city. The anthology has forty-five authors from five continents, and a prologue by Ricardo Martínez Vásquez, the Ambassador of Spain to Germany.[21][22][23]
