Corín Tellado

25 April 1927 - 11 April 2009

María del Socorro Tellado López, known as Corín Tellado, was a prolific Spanish writer of romantic novels and photonovels that were best-sellers in several Spanish-language countries. She published more than 4,000 novels and sold more than 400-million books which have been translated into several languages. She is listed in the 1994 Guinness World Records as having sold the most books written in Spanish.

Her novels were different from other contemporary European romantic writers' works because she usually set them in the present and didn't use eroticism. Her style was direct and her characters simply presented. These novels have inspired several telenovelas.1
