About the Author
The story of
Since an early age, Pedro showed a great affinity for the written word. He learned how to read at 4 years of age, was writing short stories at 6 years old, and finished his first novel at 15 years old. This novel would win the First Honorable Mention for Prose of the “Ferreira de Castro” National Award of Youth Literature in 2001.
During the course of his studies, Pedro became proficient in the English language (he won first place in his school’s “English Olympics” in 1997), and also in Castillian / Spanish. He can also understand Italian and French.
Also during his younger years, Pedro became fascinated with biblical stories and ancient mythology (particularly Greek, Egyptian, and Mesopotamian). He was an avid reader of Homer, Shakespeare, Milton, and Dante. Already in his adulthood, he discovered Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Chesterton, Charles Williams, and Joseph Ratzinger. These would become his main influences, both as a fiction writer and as a Catholic apologist.
He currently lives in Portugal with his beautiful wife Claire.
