Jeroni Alsina


As a youth, Jeroni Alsina was educated at a liberal French school outside the jurisdiction of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco’s propaganda. He went on to become a physician, practicing and researching briefly in Paris in 1964 and 1965, and London in 1972, before serving as the head of a nephrology department for thirty years. Back from Paris, in 1965 he was one of the doctors involved in the performance of the first successful renal transplant in Spain, also one of the firsts in the world.

After he retired from medicine, a friend invited Alsina to join a writer’s group. That experience led him to write his first novel, Shadows of Fire, a philosophic and historic work of fiction, which he completed in three years.

Married, Alsina is proud to be the father of his daughter, a biology professor, and his son, an economist.
