About the Book
On the way home from visiting their eldest son at university, Dan and Malou Politano had stopped in Pahokee and had both decided to take up an offer from an old Seminole Indian to re-visit their past. During their journey, they went through an incredible adventure which drove them to relive many of Dan’s childhood memories and some fantastic ancestral events while completing twelve tasks. These tasks were all designed to reinforce or ignite desires for Dan to redress his family life after a horrible skiing accident, which had occurred thirteen years earlier, had left him questioning his destiny and ignoring his future – or the future that was staring him in the face. While returning to the present, Dan and Malou were separated. Malou was the only one who made it back to 2013. As for Dan, he had unfortunately returned further in time and had lost all memory of his travels into the past with Malou. He had been found in a forest clearing – unconscious – and had been transported to the nearest hospital in Key West, Florida. When he woke up and regained his senses, he soon realized that he didn’t even know his name. Suffering from post-traumatic amnesia, the only name he remembered was the one of an old shepherd – Damianos. Not having anywhere to stay – he couldn’t remember where he lived either – Dan was sent to a shelter where he was to share a room with another man named Gustavo.
About the Author
At the end of World War II, Arnaldo Ricciulli’s parents decided to leave the torments and sequels of war behind and move to Venezuela. Arnaldo was very young when his parents left South America for the warmth and tranquility of Florida where he grew up in Boca Raton. After graduating from high school, he attended college. Obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, Arnaldo, thirsting for adventure, thought of joining the US Navy where he was readily accepted as an officer. Yet, destiny had other plans for the young man. Instead, Arnaldo went to work for Seagate Technology, SyDos and IBM. But Corporate America wasn’t for him – Arnaldo wanted to be his own man, and manage his own business. It was then that he opened a restaurateur chain, which, eight years later, counted no less than seven restaurants and a gas station. Following the sale of his business, he founded the Millenium Limo in December 2001, in the wake of nine-eleven. Somewhat to his surprise, the business took off and rapidly became the top exotic limo service, not only in the State of Florida, but across the country. The father of three children, Arnaldo remained true to his adventurous spirit until one day a skiing accident locked him down. Beaten in his purpose, but undefeated, he decided to put “his dream” on paper and The Dream Maker was born. www.thedreammaker2.com www.thedreammaker2.com
