Welcome to my site!
I was born in a family that used to eat and drink books, I grew up in the world of the moon, I studied a lot of crazy things and ended up becoming a professional liar. Don't believe in everything I tell, because neither I know what I've lived or invented. My life is travelling through this world and other worlds, in search of new things. Sometimes I have to pack and drag my bags, but most part of the time I'm free to live a thousand adventures, catching ideas around and fishing the fantasies that will decorate the stories I love to write.
