Author Biography - Alexandre Santos Lobao

Alexandre Lob o is a passionate man. His first passion was reading, starting with large books Mark Twain, rico Ver ssimo, Jules Verne, Monteiro Lobato, Alexandre Dumas, and others when he was 7. At age 12, he discovered his next two passions: playing and creating games (by that time on his first Apple computer), and writing. Many years later he's about forty now these passions still flourish. Now he's a teacher of academic game development courses, has written four books on the topic, and has participated in Brazilian gamse development contests, both as a contestant and as a judge. He has also written short story books, children's books, and young adult books, and in 2008 he released his first romance, The Name of the Eagle, currently available only in Portuguese. And, of course, he still loves to read, some favorite authors being Ken Follett and Paulo Coelho. His ultimate passions starting in 1995 and still burning are his wife, Wal ria, and his kids, Nat lia and Rafael. Alexandre believes that lives needs passion to be lived entirely, and hopes that this book helps light this passion in readers' hearts. You can find his work at
