Who Was Beatrix Potter
Born into wealth in 1860’s London, Beatrix Potter always had a vivid imagination. Her early interests included natural history and archaeology, and Potter delighted in sketching fossils and fungi. After briefly illustrating Christmas cards with her brother, Bertram, Potter wrote and illustrated her well-known book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The book was rejected by several publishes until Frederick Warne eventually took a risk and published the story in 1902 - a risk that paid off. Peter Rabbit was a huge success and readers loved hearing about Peter's mischevious adventures in the lush English countryside. As she got older, Beatrix Potter became a proud conservationist, working hard to defend the landscape she loved so well against industrialization and logging. Now over one hundred years old, Peter Rabbit and his animal friends have become cultural touchstones and continue to delight readers of all ages.

Emma y las otras Señoras del Narco
Desde su bestseller Los señores del narco (2010), éste es quizás el acercamiento más íntimo a la cúpula del narcotráfico, un detrás de cámaras de lo que ocurre en el multimillonario negocio criminal.

En Emma y las otras señoras del narco la autora recorre el velo y muestra las pulsiones más profundas que hacen a los narcos buscar poder y dinero a toda costa.

La autora de El traidor (2019), multigalardonada y reconocida internacionalmente como experta en temas de narcotráfico, una vez más gira la mesa del tablero y ofrece al lector un análisis casi antropológico de los capos de la droga y su entorno más cercano desde una nueva óptica: el mundo de sus mujeres. En estas páginas desfilan personajes como Emma Coronel y otras esposas de importantes narcotraficantes, una ex Miss Universo, y algunas de las actrices, cantantes y conductoras de televisión más reconocidas y aplaudidas en México, tanto del pasado como de la época actual.

Madres, esposas y amantes. Mujeres que se amoldan a las reglas machistas de sus amos y bailan ante ellos -en privado, fiestas u orgías- la danza de los siete velos, y lo hacen sobre los cadáveres de los miles que han sido víctimas de los mismos hombres a quienes deleitan con su cómplice presencia a cambio de dinero, joyas y propiedades.

Con el rigor investigativo que la caracteriza, Anabel Hernández, a través de entrevistas realizadas a testigos de los hechos, lleva al lector a las reuniones familiares, fiestas y alcobas de diversos narcotraficantes donde ocurren las historias de amor, compra y venta de placer, incesto, ambición, traición y venganza. Un mundo hasta ahora desconocido.
