About Me

I am a former scientist and practicing santera. I wrote a novel based on my spiritual journey.

Why do you write?

I write to tell a story that allows me to express my art, communicate ideas with readers, and identify and explore shared truths about the human condition.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Hi Irete:

I have heard of Santera but don't understand it. Could you explain it to me in an email?
