Meet the Author

BiographyI was Born in Caracas, Venezuela to Spanish parents. I came to the U.S. in 1980 to study; my parents were glad to buy me a one-way ticket and helped me pack my bags. B.S in Aeronautical Engineering and M.S in Aerospace Engineering. Since then I have worked as an engineer and a computer programmer in the structural timber industry. I'm a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Colorado.I used to skydive until I busted a knee in my 985th jump. I took up bicycling and now I'm an avid mountain biker having busted a few body parts and cracked a few helmets on rocky, steep Colorado trails. I enjoy cross country riding at night and down hilling at ski resorts during the summer days. I race BMX. I used to fly small airplanes but let private license expire because it got expensive.Publishing CreditsPublished work: “The Tomato King,” Summer 1994, Saint Joseph’s Magazine, Jersey City, NJ. “Guacaipuro’s Gold,” Vol. 7, No. 2, Chiricu, Indiana State University, Bloomington, In. “Moonstruck,” Spring 1995, Saint Joseph’s Magazine, Jersey. “Old Tales,” No. 18, 1995, Latino Stuff Review, Miami, Fl. “Tramps,” New Texas 95, University of North Texas, Denton, Tx.

    Excellent short story

    A character, a setting, an obstacle, the challenge faced. Resolution. Growth. Excellent. Better than most short stories taught in my h.s. Literature classes. Highly recommended.

    good book

    Jose had lived with his Aunt Clara. He was getting slap on his behind and he was running away from her. Clara had a lot of live in boyfriends not a fatherly type. Jose lived with the her for a long time and was battered too. Clara's live in boyfriend's name was Belisardo he was also hitting Jose now instead of Clara. I think this was child abruse . I enjoyed this novel.ShelleyMA
