       I am originally from Ponce, Puerto Rico but have spent half of my life in Iowa, USA.  I have two wonderful boys to which I dedicate myself to.  I feel like I have lived many lives from managing multiple factories to playing semi-pro football.  Throughout my endless adventures whether in the ocean or in the cornfields, I have met the people and seen the places that end up in my stories.

       Besides writing I also dedicate myself to coaching multiple sports and try to spend as much time with my boys as possible.  There is a real joy in influencing and being involved in the life of my kids and other youth. 

      My true passions are writing and cooking.  My favorite authors include Edgar Allan Poe and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  I am also a big fan of Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher. 

       From an early age I started writing poetry and short stories.  My books are born out of the nightmares of my mind and are then melded with my life experiences.  I would describe my books as reality sprinkled with a good magical dose of faerie dust, written Surrealism in other words. I hope my books can be entertaining but also be thought provoking.

Live for today, fight for tomorrow
