Among some fine company

This bit of news certainly made my day.

Pop culture search engine included me among the “best Hispanic writers in the beginning of the 21st century” alongside Isabel Allende, Paul Coelho and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It’s not every day the author of just two novels sees his name listed with literary legends like these. (Maybe my mom is secretly moonlighting at ChaCha.)

So it seems I'm famous now. Too bad more people don't know that -- especially book buyers. 

Seriously, though. Being included in such fine company is the result of those in the industry who put their trust in my work and the friends who have been so generous in their support. My deepest thanks to all of you.
