This is not a book for those seeking profound words or thought-out phrases and dialogues. No, it is mainly a story, my story with its many sad, happy, humorous moments, from a short and specific part of my life. A life somehow different to most others, for I was born at a certain time in Chile, South America, where things happened, political events which uprooted me and made me go elsewhere in search of a safer and better life. Instead, I found adventure, friends, lovers and all kinds of interesting people and places. Life itself did not get any better or worse, but fuller, richer and more interesting. I chose to write about those specific seven years of my life, for I believe that in that short period of time, I lived life in full, from riches to rags and again from rags to riches. From a cattle rancher's life in South America, to a top international male model's life in Europe, from a jet setter, to a prisoner in Carabanchel, Spain. Travelling, living and working, in a never ending search for happiness. Always finding an excuse to keep on moving, the country, the work, the people. Different circumstances deciding for me, urging me on, to look elsewhere, in search of that perfect place, the right person, my longed for "Querencia." A home.

"…she drove her right fist three inches deep into my solar plexus, putting her entire 102 pounds behind the blow. I retreated a full foot but remained on my feet. I gasped, treasuring the oxygen remaining in my lungs, and knew that little more was likely to enter there for some time. I wondered how long a person could live without breathing. More so, I wondered how long I could convince my sixteen-year-old daughter that I was unfazed by her puny blow." In this hysterical, irreverent and sometimes thought-provoking collection of essays, the author takes us on a journey through everyday, real-life events that start out as uneventful, but that wind up being anything but. 'Snapshots' is a book that everyone will identify with, and that will have you holding your stomach with laughter!

""This is the story of a war within a war-of a struggle smothered away from the light of day, a long-drawn-out and ruthless campaign of brain versus brain. And the word that governs it all is ""Intelligence,"" the process by which one person, or State, extracts information from a second, against the latter's will."" This book is part of the World War One Centenary series; creating, collating and reprinting new and old works of poetry, fiction, autobiography and analysis. The series forms a commemorative tribute to mark the passing of one of the world's bloodiest wars, offering new perspectives on this tragic yet fascinating period of human history. Each publication also includes brand new introductory essays and a timeline to help the reader place the work in its historical context.
