Sidelights

John A. Torres once told Something about the Author: "Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to be a writer. My idol as a child was Ernest Hemingway. Since I also love sports, I tried to combine my two loves: writing and sports. My ultimate dream is to have my novel published and to be able to become a full–time writer. The most important development in my evolution as a writer was when I read [Ernest] Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea during the summer I spent interning at United Press International. That was truly a baptism by fire."
