Francisco Leal Quevedo

Title details

He is a pediatrician and philosopher. He was born in Ibague- Colombia, on Halloween, 1945.

He has completed 30 years of practicing pediatrics. Still every evening he go to his office to bring health and happiness to his young patients. At that time he wrote science books (medicine, philosophy) that had nothing to do with fiction or literature.

He has a the soul of a traveler, he goes through life looking for the perfect landscape, the unforgettable emotion and when he feels touched by someplace, he invent a fictional story on it to share with my readers those unforgettable moments. He think literature does not only entertains us, but makes us better people and allows us to understand our life more and that of others. That is precisely what he looks for when he write: to celebrate life.
