WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR BOOK?
The better question is: Why should you read this novel? The real woman behind Señorita Elena Victoria de la Vega is my wife of nearly 42 years, Dalys. I have yet to know anyone who encounters her that is not drawn to her exuberant, selfless devotion. From the moment she and I met at a chaperoned dance in Panama until this day, my life with her has been pure and precious poetry. Stunningly beautiful as a young woman, I still see her as enchantingly elegant to this day. But her physical attractiveness pales in comparison to the vivacious, inner beauty that emanates from her eternally youthful spirit. Truly, I have been blessed to love and to be loved by her. My hope, and what compelled me to share our continuing romance through the story of Lieutenant Mark Warner and Señorita Elena Victoria de la Vega, is that you may celebrate with me the fascinating woman that she is--she is: a balmy breeze from two seas.

WHY ARE YOU DONATING YOUR NET ROYALTIES TO COMBAT HUMAN TRAFFICKING?
First, human trafficking is a cruelty that should not be tolerated. Second, as a first-time author, a major challenge is to find people like you who will read my book. Please buy the book, enjoy the book, give it a 5-star rating so others will buy the book; and I will be happy to donate funds that support efforts to combat human trafficking.
