9781463410803: Journey: Based On A True Story

Journey is the true story of Tomas Mateo Castellano and the secret he's kept from his family his entire life. It's 1946 in Franco's fascist Spain. Tomas is 17 years old, living on the remote Canary Islands, where they are still recovering from three years of bloody civil war. Torn between the family he loves and the desire to be free from tyranny, Tomas makes a life changing decision that alters not only his life forever, but also everyone he cares most about in the world. Tomas plans his escape in the middle of the night stealing a sailboat and setting sail across the Atlantic to America in search of freedom and the life he's been dreaming about - leaving behind everything he knows and loves. This story follows his extraordinary adventure, and the suffering a family goes through after waking up one morning to find their son has disappeared . . . not knowing whether he is alive or dead.

About the Author:

Stephen Mateo is originally from Toronto, Canada. He began his career as an actor, over twenty years ago, studying in Los Angeles. Stephen's acting career has been grounded in television and theater, landing co- starring roles on various sitcoms, and appearing Off-Broadway in the hit The Crumple Zone both in New York and Los Angeles. It was soon after that, that he decided to take hold of his career and began writing. Stephen wanted to write material that meant something to him, in a very personal way. In hopes that the stories would resonate with others, and encourage them to think about their own lives. He likes to develop characters that people relate to, or at least, can emotionally invest them selves in. Stephen's first attempt at this was a full-length screenplay titled, Dear John. Two things inspired him to write Dear John. First, he wanted to tell a story of love, to show people that the experience of finding love is no different, no matter whom you are. The second was freedom-the freedom to make our own decisions. Then Stephen decided to tell the story of Journey. Journey is a story of the lengths one will go to in search for freedom: the simultaneous desire to find our own place in the world, and the guilt we feel over separating ourselves from our family. I want to say to anyone who is reading this book is, "never give up on your dreams". This book is living proof that dreams do come true, not only for me the Author, but also for Tomas Castellano, the main character in this story. And if it weren't for his courage . . . there would be no JOURNEY.
