My first book called “The First Half” will be serialized here one chapter a week. It reflects on the first half of my life, my search of an identity, and the journeys of lost boy trying to be a man. I’ve always envisioned myself one day writing a book, but I never knew what it would be about. I thought once I get into my 40’s I would have a better idea. Then one day I was sitting outside a cafe on a beautiful Uruguayan night and got the inspiration to start writing my first book now. I decided I had lived through enough things and had a good amount of stories to make a great first book. And you never know, I may never make it to see my 40’s. This book is called “The First Half” and from the first chapter you will know exactly why. I am not writing this book in hopes of it becoming a bestseller or appear on Oprah. I’m writing it so that people I know can get to know me a little better. So other people who have similar dreams, struggling with similar things will know that they are not alone. That in fact dreams do come true and that life isn’t always a fairytale. Maybe I just love writing and just want another excuse to write. Regardless, whoever reads this book will know my story. Everybody has a unique story. This one is mine.
