fmmFrancisco Martín Moreno es autor de novelas históricas y un apasionado investigador de la cara oculta de México, pero para llegar a ello tuvo que reinventar su vida y jugársela, porque “me dediqué a lo contrario, con tal de buscar la aceptación familiar”. Estudió en el Colegio Alemán Alexander von Humboldt, después la licenciatura en Derecho y obtuvo un doctorado en la Academia Mexicana de Derecho.

Sin embargo, Francisco desde los ocho años sabía que escribir era lo que lo iba a llevar a dar lo mejor de sí y puso en marcha toda su imaginación y todo su talento durante 14 horas al día para construir su primera novela: México Negro. Una investigación sobre la Revolución y quiénes financiaron la guerra. Un primer tiraje de 25 mil ejemplares de un primer libro es en sí mismo un logro. El autor fue el primer sorprendido. Se había convertido en escritor.

Su particular estilo como autor de novela histórica con toques de ficción permitió que se afianzara en el gusto del público. Su capacidad de análisis y su pasión por México, así como por descubrirle a sus lectores nuevos enfoques del pasado y de la historia conocida, lo ha llevado a escribir e investigar más, sobre los capítulos más polémicos de la vida política y religiosa del país. El resultado se muestra en sus obras:

  • México negro (1986)
  • Las cicatrices del viento (1989)
  • La disculpa (1993)
  • La respuesta (1994)
  • Los mexicanos en pantuflas (1995)
  • Los mexicanos a contraluz (1996)
  • Cartas a un mexicano (1997)
  • México sediento (1998)

  • Arrebatos carnales III (2011)
  • Las vergüenzas de México (2014)
  • En media hora la muerte (2014)
  • México Engañado (2015)

Es autor de más de 2 mil columnas publicadas en medios impresos como los periódicos Novedades, Excélsior, El País, entre otros. Es comentarista de radio y televisión. Ha sido conductor de programas de televisión y actualmente forma parte del cuarteto que desentraña los detalles de la historia de México en El Refugio de los Conspiradores que se transmite por el canal Proyecto 40, los días martes y sábados.

Algunos de los reconocimientos que ha obtenido a lo largo de su carrera literaria y periodística, le fue otorgado el Laurel de Oro a la Excelencia Literaria por su libro Las cicatrices del viento en España, y en México ha recibido el Premio Nacional de Periodismo en 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997 y 1998.

CONFERENCES

One of my professional activities, consists of dictating conferences, as in Mexico as abroad. I have spoken in The United States, Spain, Switzerland and Germany; also in Mexico in diverse stages, as universities, political, managerial and social forums, in which I have analyzed fundamentally topics such as: the origins of the Mexican lag with a historical perspective, and others as education, democracy and development; spreading a synthesis of my studies, my essays, my novels and my publications in Mexican and foreign diaries.

In 2011, I was dictating conferences in my country, on the topic: the Mexico of yesterday, the one of today and the one of the future. It turns out impossible to understand Mexico in our days without knowing the native history, especially the Mexican 19th century, which hides unsuspected truths…
