I am a fiction novel writer, the author of flying for the scent which will make you cry, smile and bring you hope. It is full of inspiration, love, hope, despairs and humor. Once during my prerequisite English class at the College of Staten Island in New York, my teacher had commented on my creative writing, she recommended for me to take some creative writing classes and pursue an English major. Internally I laughed yet many years passed before I recalled her comments and started writing but the more I wrote, the more I enjoyed it.
I was, nicked named Haimito by his parents, born in Bogota Colombia, lived in Jordan and the U.S.A. I hold bachelors’ degree in chemistry and pharmacy. Currently, I work as a hospital pharmacist. I believe that there is no place warmer than a mother’s hug as there is no complete true love like a mother’s love. There is no encouragement like a father’s smile as there is no honest, unbiased wish to achieve like a father’s wish and there is nothing sweeter than a being in love with someone who loves you.
