What is your favorite quality about yourself? I don’t get angry easily, and even when I do, I forgive and forget very quickly and don’t hold grudges.
What is your least favorite quality about yourself? I get distracted very easily and then I tend to digress…I drives my wife crazy!
What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why? “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Albert Einstein
This quote from arguably the top scientist ever changes, in my mind at least, the whole concept of how we look at science and how we should look at the world, with an open mind and with imagination leading us.
What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life? The relationship we have in my family. It takes work, patience and love to have a great family.
What is your favorite color? Grey. In all its various shades.
What is your favorite food? Sushi!
What’s your favorite place in the entire world? Florence. I love places full of history and Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance. Everything in the city has a long and colorful history.
How has your upbringing influenced your writing? I was taught never to see everything as an absolute, in my home and at school. There are always two sides to all stories and that bleeds into my writing, life is never black or white and even the best of people can have dark moments.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? It’s always been there, but I began as a kid storyteller, I was the kid in 3rd grade that turned a cops n’ robbers game into a full Sherlock Holmes–Moriarty caper! I remember that my friends seemed to like it and they would even ask me for names for their imaginary friends.
When and why did you begin writing? 6th grade, my first story was the fan-fic sequel to “The Last Starfighter”…I continued writing for me and my friends until I moved into the U.S. and then one of them, Francisco, convinced me to self-publish Guardians Inc. about a year and a half ago.
How long have you been writing? Practically forever, but I started writing in my native Spanish, English is still daunting for me and I’m sure that I’ll never get the hang of it completely and it shows. Needless to say that I consider editors angels sent directly from heaven.
