“The privilege is not writing a novel, it's to have someone read it. When you look at it that way, you realize the responsibility you have to put your very best on the page.”
Javier A. Robayo

“Personal accounts flow from the heart and tend to be the most difficult to write. It's nearly impossible to remove the emotional undertones, and it takes so much courage to open those pages to everyone else.”
Javier A. Robayo

“Religion exists to explain the unexplained, to calm our fear of dying, but all it does is breed more fear and hatred.”
