Featured Author: Silvano Williams

Silvano Williams was born in Puerto Rico in 1975 and moved to Houston, Texas during his teen years. There he went to High School and College and began courses to obtain a Minor in Creative Writing. During his school years, Silvano became an avid reader and writer for the sole purpose of mastering the English language. Although his writing generally received a good reception, he did not take his talents seriously, so he gave away many of his stories to friends or simply threw them away. Not being able to jump into a field of study relating to the entertainment business, coupled with having to make several hard choices in his life, he refocused his career and dropped out of college.

With the advent of computers becoming a common household item and a new technology era happening during that time, the choice between a career path and his artistic nature became a logical affair, and Information Technology became his new passion while writing was set aside as a hobby. However, after almost two decades of daydreaming and enjoying the emergence of new mediums of entertainment and publishing, Silvano has reopened the doors to his imagination planning to expose the world to the crazy universes living inside his head. Currently, he resides in Katy, Texas with his wife and two children. And yes, they think he is crazy too.

Lear more about Silvano from his Amazon author page and his website.
