About the Author:
Hugo Granieri, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1934, emigrated to the United States in 1962 with his wife and 3 year old daughter. An ex-medical student with a degree in Business Administration, he worked hard to build up a good status in his new country. While he was working for the Argentine Naval Attaché in Wahington D.C., he earned a degree in art and his wife a degree in Linguistics and Literature from Georgetown University. He produced, for his own collection and friends, several paintings and sculptures. A calendar with his drawings depicting historical landmarks of Alexandria, Virginia, was published in 1972. He moved to Oklahoma and finally settled in Texas in 1980. An avid reader since an early age, he has always regretted not having had enough time to put on paper (except for a few outlines) what his imagination has been dictating for years. Now retired, he has finished his first book. Currently, he is working on a collection of short stories. He lives in the northern outskirts of Houston, with his wife Liliane, a teacher, and not too far from his daughter Patricia, also a teacher, and his grand-daughters Alexa and Eliza.
