What is one book everyone should read? 
That’s really difficult to answer, but I think that the one book that everyone should read to a child is Jonathan Livingston Seagull, by Richard Bach. It’s a beautiful story to tell to kids and its message for not being a conformist and instead to strive to attain your potential is wonderful.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
A Green Lantern’s ring. You can create whatever you imagine with it and it lets you fly too, even in outer space!

If you could meet one person who has died who would you choose?
Lorenzo de’ Medici. The primordial Renaissance man, if only to ask him what he thought about his employees: Botticelli, Verrocchio, Michelangelo and Da Vinci.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
Guardians Inc. is a yummy multilayered fantasy- mythology- alternate history soufflé sprinkled with just a little bit of sci-fi and wrapped in crunchy a conspiracy theory crust.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published
Getting reviews! Good and bad, they mean that people are reading my books and are a direct feedback line from the readers.

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?
The Three Musketeers: Adventure, mystery, drama, love, honor, loyalty and friendship. All the things a daydreamer needs.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Lorenzo’s city, Florence. Beautiful place, birthplace of the Renaissance and from there all of Europe is within reach.

How did you know you should become an author?
When the friends I showed my half finished stories began to show them in turn to their friends and family.  It was vindicating and empowering to hear    

Favorite Food?
Sushi. In all its varieties.

What was your favorite children's book?
It was a Plaza Sesamo,(Sesame Street) book in Spanish with pop up characters. The Cookie monster was hilarious! I kinda felt very close to him…like he was a blue hairy  brother.

Can you share a little about the current title you are working on?
I work on the remaining titles of Guardians Inc at the same time, some creatures and events appearing briefly in The Cypher or Thundersword return on the next books. I just published Book Two Thundersword, and next in line is The Four Legged Prophet, Book Three of Guardians Inc but not the final one.

When I first created the storyline I knew that three books wouldn’t be enough to show all the things, characters and factions that exist in the Guardians Inc. world. Book Three brings the last players of the world into the story and sets the beginning of the end for the Guardians Inc storyline.
By the way, the final chapter of the whole storyline is already written. The Final Book, Concordia is about thirty percent finished.
