So, why would I, Macarena, go to meet a Writer, Ian Vasquez, who lives now in St. Petersburg, Florida? Well, let me tell you, I felt it was so important to speak with this Man and get his story, after having so enjoyed reading his book, In The Heat. Ian Vasquez, grew up in Belize City, and his story is based upon a young man, named Miles Young who is a local boxing hero living in the city. Miles is a devoted Father to his daughter; and his major purpose in life seems to be protecting her from danger and, occasionally, from her own mother. Vasquez’s writing takes you right into the story in such a way, that you actually feel you are walking thru the life of his main character, Miles, thru his adventures that take him from the inner city to the Cayo District. It is fun to be taken in this story to familiar areas of Belize, and when reading this book, you become part of the mystery that evolves.
Ian, the writer, shared with me that he learned a very valuable lesson, that this book is now a visible product of. He wrote his stories as a writer is instructed to, and planned them out, all the way to the ending.
Yet, he felt something was missing he says. So, Ian had the inspiration, ( which comes from the word, In Spiritus, which is Latin for In Spirit) to write as the story unfolded page by page, line by line, and to have fun with it. Ian says that if the writer is not having fun writing the story, chances are the reader will not either. I can tell you for sure, that Ian Vasquez not only entertained me in this book, In The Heat, he also amazed me how captivated his story kept me. I feel that Ian, has very successfully written this book, in the manner he set out for, to entertain both the reader and to bring to life Miles, as a hero you want to read more and more about !
I fully recommend this book, you shall not be disappointed.
Ian Vasquez is a editor for the St Petersburg Times Newspaper .
Till again, Macarena
