About the Author
As I get older and, with a bit of luck, wiser, I want to pass on to the younger generations the lessons life has taught me. Jesus Christ taught that it was easier to sell ideas with stories. Following the Master, I published "The Amazon Shaman" and "In Search of Happiness", two psychological thrillers around the theme of happiness.
My first encounter with the teachings of the Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung, one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th Century, was during my midlife crisis. Reading "Man and his Symbols" at that time, inspired me to go into Jungian analysis and to begin devouring the writings of Jung and his disciples.
Since then, I've been studying psychology, especially Jungian psychology and, after reaching my seventies, I decided to become a full time writer, specializing on books on Jungian psychology and psychological thrillers.
Every masterpiece of literature can be absorbed through multiple interpretations, and yield powerful insights for our daily lives. My first Jungian book, "The Little Prince for Grown-ups", in its fourth edition in Brazil, was based on the famous book of Saint-Exupéry. The second, - "The Jungian Bible" - interprets some stories of the Old Testament and world myths.
