Ever since a very young age I have had a passion for reading, traveling, meeting new people, learning foreign languages and experiencing new cultures. Those passions and my love of adventure inspired me to write my debut novel When The Jaguar Sleeps which I published under a pen name J.A. Kalis. I have wanted to write a novel for as long as I could remember, but somehow I wasn’t able to get around to it. One day an idea for a story popped into my head, where it began to linger and grow. As scenes and characters took shape in my brain, I began to write my thoughts down. A year later I completed my debut novel. From then on, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a full-time writer. Although English is not my native language, I chose to write my novels in English. Presently, I am working on my second book, another action packed, fast paced thriller but set in a different country than the first one. Or to be more precise, set in two different countries.
