love all things artistic (photography, movies, music, painting...) and reading has been my hobby since I can remember. I enjoy reading all types of books. I also love to travel.

¡Hello! Vanessa H.
I find Shelfari very interesting and enriching for readers and authors. I am just taking my first steps in this rich world through Internet where my wife and my two daughters travel since long time ago. My mother language is Spanish even though I speak English.
I recently spent a few days in the “Gran Sabana” in southern Venezuela, one of the more ancient places in our planet. From where I live it is a day trip by road. It was a novel experience for my youngest daughter; sleep in a tent in a native camp, bath in waterfalls, navigate a rushing river by canoe, see large waterfalls and majestic “tepuyes”, sense the immensity of the vast plateau of the plains in the middle of the jungle, and more. For me, it was the opportunity to meet again with the place that inspired the first of four adventures that give life to my fiction novel in Spanish, always motivated to communicate realistic and positive messages to teens and young adults.
If you know someone that may be interested in reading a fiction novel of mystery and adventure in Spanish, here are the links in Amazon:
(La búsqueda de los verdaderos tesoros: La guía, la llave y el salvoconducto.)
You will find that you can read part of the novel and also that there are some Book Extras that may give you an idea about it.
My best regards, Bernardo Lorenzo.
