I'm Your Host
Author Luis Gonzalez,
Luis Gonzalez grew up in Culver City, California after his widowed mother of three fled Communist Cuba in the late 1960’s. Though he quickly assimilated into his new country and culture, and though he had no trouble mastering his new language, Cuba never left him. Cuba was always with him: inside him, driving him, calling him. He realized this more than ever when, in the 6th grade, he did his country report on Cuba and thus began a love affair with his homeland that continues to this day. It was only natural that Cuba should play a part in his writing, and even from grammar school age, Luis Gonzalez knew that writing was in his blood.
“I always loved to write, even as a young child. And I guess I’ve always been an indie author because, when I was in the third grade, after only having been in this country a couple of years, I wrote two stories. One was called The Magic Slippers, the other was called The Dolphins.
It was only natural that Luis Gonzalez would go on to study something in the language arts, and so he graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature, and a concentration in Spanish composition and literature. As someone who is deeply moved and inspired by politics and religion and the arts, it was no wonder that he came up with the idea for his novel, Luz, a story that grapples with all three realms. These days Luis Gonzalez calls San Francisco home where he lives with his wife and two of four daughters.
