I have walked the crowded and usually friendly streets of Facebook, and watched from the shore the river of Twitter pass by. But I think better when away from the noise, the crowds, the busy cities where I'd lived most of my life. Sometimes, I would like to camp in the lonely mountains and hear the faint echoes of distant conversations. Many of the ideas expressed here were born in those spaces, in the vast silence between worlds.

The publication of my first novel, The Sound of a Broken Chain, marks for me the end of a journey and the beginning of another. Other books are coming soon, their universes more real every day. And many other stories will be shared here. Some were born in my past, in other countries where I’ve lived. And others in a future that already looms over us.

Information about my upcoming book can be found in BOOKS and several ongoing BLOGS are linked to these pages.
