About the Author

Ivan Pacheco Jr. was born and raised in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Obtained a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Puerto Rico. He was interested in literature since a very young age, especially in the work of Ernest Hemingway- the subject of most of his essays and personal reading material. Hemingway's work was not his only shared interest; for he grew up hunting and fishing in different parts of the world as well. Some of the stories recounting these scripts were already made famous in the "Good Fishing and Dining" newspaper which he published for nearly two years. Now retired, the author has at last the time and leisure to fulfill his lifelong dream of putting together all of this outstanding work on a book. His interesting adventures are expressed in a fresh and lean hard-boiled prose. The stories, mostly based on real facts are absorbing, profoundly touching and sometimes hilarious! It is masterfully told as only one that witnessed them can.
