I just got a book for Xmas by him.Called "The 2nd morning of the world" (at least that was the portuguese translation fo the title).
Since it was part of a collection where books like Ender's Game or Schismatrix where featured I thought the guy might be a well known sci fi author.I just wanted to know if you folks knew him and could say more about his other work.
I like the book very much.It's the story of a teen and a kid who are virtually the only survivours of a cataclysm on planet Earth.

He was a writer for Cataluņa (Catalonia) in Spain. He used to write in Catalan (the language of Catalonia). Though he wrote one or two SF novels, he is not a genre writer.
His most famous work is, possibly, "El mecanoscrit del segon origen" ("mecanic writing of the second origin"?) which seems to me is the book you have read. I haven't read it myself yet (it is in the to-read list) but it has some good critics and it is quite appreciated here in Spain. I don't know much about his other books.
