I have been very gratified with the reception my first book has and still is receiving. ROCHA’S TREASURE OF POTOSI was written after many years of research and long hours of thought. I got the story when I first visited Potosi, Bolivia and was trapped there by blockades I couldn’t get out of the city and fortunately found a guide who spoke English and for days we exchanged stories. His true story of Francisco Rocha mesmerized me. I could not believe that the story that was so important to history had never been written. It took me 17 years to put it on paper, but every stroke of the keys made me know that I would be exposing the world to an amazing story and at the same time describing historical events that few were privileged to know.
