Do you have an all-time favorite novel?
What motivated you to write this story?
Share this true story with people. I want readers to take away from my writing , that we humans do we do part of the same Pack; that Christian, Muslim, Jew, Baptist, Buddhist, etc … are adjectives of the most important thing: “The Person”. That the only law that is given us to know is that of “Natural Order of Things”. That religion is a purely personal, and that it is good that God remain in the background and that no one has the presumption to elect himself His representative on earth .That for more than 2000 years we have been slaves of the worst kind: mental slaves of the so-called prophets or spiritual leaders. As we know, the Olympus collapsed …. it is very likely that in this century will inevitably fall even the Holy See, Mecca and the Wailing Wall.

What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?
In many cases, the adoption of a child inevitably has many problems due to the trauma of abandonment. I wanted to share my experience with both the couples who are planning to adopt a child and be with people, seeking the root causes, which often have to do with nature, religion, politics, etc. .. etc. ..
I was forced visit many of the darkest places of human nature, and I have learned to appreciate and enjoy many things that are often taken for granted, only because the benevolent fate bestowed them upon us.
