Luisa María Linares-Becerra y Martín de Eugenio was born on 1915 in Madrid, Spain, daughter of Luis Linares-Becerra, a playwright, journalist and teather, and his wife, María Concepción Martín de Eugenio. She had two sisters: María Concepción and María del Carmen. After their father death, her sister started to write romance novels as Concha Linares-Becerra.

At 15, she fell in love with Antonio Carbó y Ortiz-Repiso, and they married on September 1933, when she was 18. They had two daughters: María Luisa and María Concepción. Her husband was executed on 14 August 1936 on the destroyer "Almirante Valdés". Back at the mother's home, she began writing for magazines. In 1939, coinciding with the end of the Spanish Civil War, she published her first novels. The following year her novel En poder de Barba Azul was adapted to film, the first of 22 adaptations.
