Overview

Routine is a quiet, peaceful enemy. Day by day it conquers new territories of onés soul until therés no desire left to fight against it. Michael and Gail, a young married couple, were just realizing the silent march of routine creeping in their lives and killing their love, when Michael brought home a book of poems with more than poetry in it. That book was the decisive factor for them to give up their comfortable but sad life and embark on a dream they had cherished for long: to travel the South Pacific aboard of an old sailing boat.
But more is to come: Thomas Blake, an old librarian who owns a small bookstore close to where Michael works, gives him as a present a very special book. Only later and in the open sea will Michael and Gail discover the gift they have been blessed with.
Their fears, their desires, for which probably the reader will relate to and the secret of living your own and unique life are enclosed in Distant Winds, a book with flavour of the sea that invites us to take the risks in our pursuit of true happiness.

About the Author

Sergio Bambarén Roggero was born the first day of December of 1960 in Lima, Peru. Educated in a British High School, Sergio has been captivated from his early years by the ocean, having been born in a city that meets the sea. This would influence him for the rest of his life, and put him in a journey he would have never expected: to become a writer.
His spirit of traveling took him to the United States, where he graduated as a Chemical Engineer at Texas A&M University. However, the ocean was still his greatest love, and traveling gave him the opportunity to go surfing to places such as Central America, Mexico, California and Hawaii.
After a brief stay in the country in which he was born, Sergio decided to migrate to Sydney, Australia, where he worked as a Sales Manager for a multinational company; however, he also managed to travel to the Southeast Asia and African coasts in search of the perfect wave. Legendary places like Bali, Nias, Jeffreýs Bay, Agadir in Morocco and the Philippines, as well as Australia and New Zeeland were part of his surfing travels.
After several years in Australia, Sergio took a sabbatical and travelled to Europe in search of the perfect wave. It was in Portugal, in a wonderful beach surrounded by pine forests called Guincho, that Sergio found the purpose of his life and a very special friend. A lonely dolphin that gave him the inspiration to write his first novel: "The Dolphin, Story of a Dreamer".
After he returned to Sydney, Sergio self-published his book in Oz. This happened in 1996. Suddenly everything in Sergiós life changed. He sold more than 100,000 copies of "The Dolphin" in Australia in less than a year. "The dolphin" has now been translated into 40 languages and dialects. Other books followed, such as "Distant Winds", "The Guardian of the Light", "Thoughts by the ocean", "Tales from Heavens", "Nightingale Story" and others. His books have been published in more than seventy countries.
