Armando Lucas Correa is a Cuban author who has made a reputation for himself penning stories that ring true across cultures and borders.

He is also a lifelong journalist that has been front and center in the coverage in covering issues to do with the Hispanic community in the United States. In this regard, he has been responsible for the development of culturally relevant content in all manner of formats.
Armando is also a knowledgeable resource on anything from digital transformation, to omnichannel business, and publishing. He is also a writer and speaker on multicultural issues such as gay parenthood, and surrogacy.

Correa published “The German Girl” his debut novel in 2016 and the work would become an international bestseller. The novel has since been published in more than 17 languages and was optioned and is about to be made into a TV series by Hollywood Gang Productions.
He has also had a long career at the Spanish Edition of People Magazine where he worked for more than a dozen years as Editor in Chief. During his time there, he managed to expand the reach of the paper and made it into an omnichannel operation that catered to more than 75% of the Hispanic population in the United States.

Lucas Correa the Cuban author landed in Miami in 1991 where he got a job working for El Nuevo Herald as a freelancer. He got his start in journalism working in the entertainment section in which he wrote a range of dance critiques.
Ultimately, he was offered a full-time position and began covering everything from crime to politics and elections among other things. It was while he was working as a journalist that he started thinking of pursuing his dream of becoming a fiction author.
However, writing is something that he has always done ever since he was a child. He started out writing essays but his first ever literary fiction work was the award-winning play “Final Exam.”

He would then work on a novel about Cuba during the 1980s but ultimately never published it. It was more of an experiment to play with the language he told the story of young people who were wandering on the streets of Havana.

Years later, he was approached by a Harper Collins/Rayo editor who asked him to write about his experiences as a surrogate father. The editor was impressed with the manuscript and from then on talk developed about him writing a fiction novel, which he finally did in 2016.

While Armando Lucas Correa has achieved a lot with his fiction works, he still works as an editor for “People Magazine.” The biggest boon of working as an editor is the strong presence on different media platforms and a strong social media presence that makes the promotion of his works easier.

When he is not writing his novels or working as an editor, he can usually be found speaking on Latinx/Hispanic issues and culture in addition to issues about gay parenthood books, surrogacy, historical fiction, and digital transformation.
