About the Author
For as long as he can remember Lorenzo has been an observer, an explorer, and a storyteller.As a young boy and inspired by old Hollywood movies such as Robin Hood or Prince Valiant, he penned extraordinary tales of heroes rescuing loved ones in distress. But most of all, he cherished writing about the summers at his maternal grandparent's farm where no one bullied him and no man ever desired him. Alone there, surrounded by Cuba's beautiful countryside, away from the chaos of his Havana home, he would discover his perseverance and strength.He arrived in New York City at seventeen after a two-year exile in Spain without any money, not knowing the language, and lacking the skills to step into a world unlike anything that he had ever known. Against a mountain of obstacles, Lorenzo found a way to make his new country home, attend college, and build a professional and personal life for himself.Today, he lives in Virginia with his husband of over twenty-five years and a spirited Corgi Mix named Lucy Honeychurch in honor of E. M. Forster's A Room with a View.
