He studied and obtained his degree in Journalism, but as part of this course, he also studied Political Science. Eo then worked for 21 years from to as a war news correspondent.
He began his journalistic career in the daily publication ‘El Pueblo’, where he worked for 12 years.
After his stretch with ‘El Pueblo’, he then began working for the national Spanish media company, RTVE, for whom he worked for another 9 years, up until Later, he left the show saying that the content of the show was ‘rubbish’ while in Pamplona inleading to him to revive his journalistic career as a war correspondent. It was from here onwards that he decided to exclusively dedicate his time to literature. However, among all of them, it was the war in Eritrea in eastern Africa in that affected him the most.
At one point, he disappeared for a few months, surviving only with the help of his friends in the guerrilla army.

His novels so far tend to be set in Spain, or the Mediterranean region, and make references to the culture, history, art and colonies of Spain.
However, they also tend to deal with a major issue that can be found in modern day society such as the relationship between religion and politics, or the drug trade. This viewpoint has certainly been shaped over the past by his research into crimes and his experience in wars and conflicts across the globe. In the more recent parts of his literary career, he has become infamous for developing a more maverick and abrasive style which has become a point of conflict between Arturo and other journalists and writers.
Now, his works can be found in most languages, including English, Portuguese and Turkish. However they are still more easily found in the original Spanish – a good reason to take some Spanish courses in Spain!
