I like Fiction, some poetry, I have written two books, on is a Thriller about a Serial Killer, it's rather gruesome but I think I have an original approach to the story. That one is called Visitations, 82,000 words. The other book is The Drug Lord, which are the adventures of a member of a drug cartel in Venezuela, most of it actually happened, which made it easier to write, I just wrote all the bad stuff that was hiding in the back of my memories. The theme of the book is poverty.
I have always loved writing, for me is a passion. I want to be able to write at least two books a year. Plan to dedicate the rest of my life to it. I don't care if I don't get published, I enjoy creating a new world, or following and catching a serial killer.
I have written The Drug Lord, a lot of what is in that book are actually things that happened to me, or to others in Ecuador, South America. I have lived an Interesting Life, and believe me, it is better to write about it the to actually live it.
Honest critique, help from the group, for me to also help others, give and receive advice, become better at the craft together.
My name is Ernesto Victorio Oporto, I have been reading books all my life, it's a need for me. I came to the US in 1959, always wanted to write, and I have started. I have a BSEE and an MBA, I most have read thousand of books in my life.
Very happy to be a member.
