"Salvador a Mexican"...
The working title.

The book should be available sometime before Christmas. At least that is my goal.
This is more than a story of Tio Domingos Restaurant in Ajijic, Mexico, it's Salvador's story, a common man with an uncommon story.

You may have met and know Salvador already but if you don't, you should. Below are only a few of his customer's comment.

Don't Retire in Mexico (Nonfiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 12, 2015 12:21PM
Description: Moving to Mexico in 06 was easy; it was leaving eight years later that was difficult. Before retiring, everyone looks for Paradise, but who really finds it? Ron and Ella Jackson did. They found it in a little 500-year-old Mexican village called Ajijic and expected to live there the rest of their lives. They were passionately in love with their little village, the Mexican people, their customs and their lifestyle. Sadly though, love and passion alone were not enough to overcome the unanticipated circumstances which were forcing them to leave Mexico. While saying their goodbyes to their many Mexican, Canadian and American friends, they knew they were also saying goodbye to a country and lifestyle they had come to love. It wasn't until they had been living in Florida for almost six months, that Ron learned that living in Mexico had consequences, consequences he felt the world should know, and as a result, penned the book, "Don't Retire in Mexico."
"The Secret of Golconda" (Drama)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: The story chronicles the adventures, the humor, the politics and romances of a young family working together, high in Colorado's Rocky Mountains, building a full service destination resort. Their 15 year stuggle, dealing with the weather, the politics, lawyers and engineers, helicopter crashes and employees, will make you wonder, what kept them going? Twenty three years after leaving the resort, The Secret of Golconda was finally revealed to Ron and Ella.

C.S. Lewis
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
