COMING IN JULY 2006: AL FINAL DEL ABISMO! (Spanish)
Deadly Whispers in the Wind, 2007, the second part of the trilogy!
Born in Manhattan, NY on March 11, 1961. (soon is my 45 birthday) Ever since I can remember, Iíve been dreaming of writing a suspense novel. From the first day my mother took me to a public library, I was drawn to thrillers and suspense. Somewhere, in the back of my mind, I knew that someday I would write.
Itís a childhood dream and a manís reality. A reality that was triggered by many events in my life, but took form in the middle of the most difficult time of my life; coming to terms with the reality that my mother was being taken from me by an incurable illness, lung cancer.
It was at this time that I realized that my mother was holding on to my dream and that she wonít let go until it was fulfilled.
Many things happens in a manís life that shapes our destiny. It could be unimportant events, sad moments, happy times, but all that leave a mark in it that you will not understand until that precise moment where everything comes together and you understand, really understand, why it had to happen.
Reading has always been my hobby. It took me away from reality into a world unknown to me. A world that was sometimes happy, other times tragic, but always full of surprises, deep and rich.
It was reading ,that the dream of becoming a writer started taking shape. I wanted to bring other people the satisfaction that I felt when reading a good book, the wonderful experience of entering another world, another dimension of the human mind, a world where you didnít have to deal with your own problems, but for a while somebody else was there to solve lifeís problems.
I truly believe that life is about choices. I choose to write and I sure hope you enjoy the reading of Deadly Whispers.(www.publishamerica.com)The second part of this trilogy, Deadly Whispers in the Wind, it comes out next year...
A long and difficult road always starts with a first step. A path that
sometimes makes us ask ourselves: why walk through it? The
inevitable question in our minds, is: am I alone, or will I have support
from someone? God doesnít give us anything that we canít overcome,
nor rejects us when we turn to Him. In the life of every human being,
there always appears a person that helps you walk down the road, and
motivates you to walk faster, but determined. In my path to fulfill my
dream of writing my first novel, a lot of times I was uncertain if I
could start it, and when I did, my heart beat with the fear of not being
able to accomplish the dream I had promised to carry out. A childís
dream; a manís reality.
In the middle of this whirlpool of mixed feelings, a few people
supported and pushed me towards reaching my goal. One of them, my
sister, Yolanda Vergara, who always believed in my ability to carry
out the task that destiny placed over my shoulders. Long nights of
sleeplessness, of research, of fear and tears, were necessary to
strengthen Deadly Whispers, until it turned into a successful reality.
Love, dedication and faith in me, were the valuable tools my dear
sister deposited on me, especially on those long and endless days
where she had the task of translating the manuscript to the English
language, all by herself.
Not least important, my parents, Elsie and Gerardo Vergara, that never said
no to my wish of writing a suspense novel. They supported me all the
way. My beloved mother, Elsie, the pillar of my formation along with
my father, are my greatest motivation to accomplish my dream; the
strength that pushed me to complete it, especially my mother, who has
a terminal disease and is fighting valiantly to overcome it. A disease
that we trust God to take care of. Thank you mom and dad, for all the
years of dedication and sacrifice. I love you both with all my heart. Here are the results. (MY MOTHER ELSIE DIED THIS WEEK, FEBRUARY 19, 2002. I AM ALWAYS GOING TO LOVE YOU, MOMMY. FOR YOU, ALL MY HEART AND DEDICATION AND MY NEXT NOVEL TOTALLY DEDICATED TO YOU AND YOUR LOVE FOR ME. I REALLY MISS YOUR SMILE AND COURAGE, BUT I KNOW, DEEP IN MY HEART, THAT SOME DAY I AM GOING TO SEE YOU AGAIN, NO MATTER WHAT)
The list could be endless.
Thank you dear cousin and friend Leslie Padilla, from Manati, Puerto Rico, for your words of encouragement
when I needed them most, YOU ARE THE BEST!, my brother in law Ramiro Ramos, who was one of
the first to listen to my dream of writing and supported me from the
beginning. Thank you,
guys. My most deeply thanks to AmErica House, Willem Meiners,Kelly Hartman, Miranda Prather, Anne and others for believing in the success of this story. I feel proud
to belong to their team of talented writers.
With all my heart, thank you. This is the first of many, and I know
I can always count on these beautiful people that God placed in my
way. Enjoy the novel.
This...is only the beginning.
