From an early age, Lucatero nursed a penchant for making up stories but always thought of it as a hobby. He was bad at sports, so writing was always the next thing he could do to pass the time. However, after having been fired for the third time and realizing that, to him, holding a sneeze was easier than keeping a job, Gabriel considered writing as more of a hobby.
Now, thanks to the newer and easier internet world, and some rejection letters from publisher all over the country, he decided to give self-publishing a try. So far so good.
If you are into fiction that will make you cringe a little, you are in the right place.
