It is an honor, as an author, for Mr. Jose Luis Piquero to be the one to bring my literary work to Spanish speaking persons of the world. He has brilliantly translated such said literary work while maintaining my literary expression. If i could be so honored, Jose Luis Piquero, will bring all my literary works/expressions into the Spanish language. Daniel ( bestselling author )
