Colombian writer and Nobel Prize laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez has denied
Colombian writer and Nobel Prize laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez has denied reports that he has given up writing, regional media said on Monday.

Last week, the writer's agent, Carmen Balcells, was quoted by the Chilean La Tercera paper as saying, "I don't think Garcia Marquez will write anything else."

Gerald Martin, the 82-year-old writer's biographer, also earlier expressed doubts whether Marquez would publish anything new.

However, the author subsequently denied that he was putting down his pen in a phone interview with Colombia's El Tiempo newspaper.

"This is not true. The only true thing is that I do not do anything else but write," the 1982 Nobel Prize winner for literature said.

"My job is not to publish, but to write. I will know when the cake I am baking is ready to eat," he added.

Marquez won world fame with his 1967 novel One Hundred Years of Solitude. The writer's last book, Memories of My Melancholy Whores, was published in 2004.
