About the Author: Federico Sanchez Seabrook was born (1951) and raised in Mexico City. He graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from Tufts University in 1975. For the most part he has run his own businesses as varied as silk screening, a cement block company, a grinding plant for nonmetallic minerals. Since 1987 he runs a design, manufacturing, wholesale and retail business of sterling silver accessories, Pat Areias Sterling, with his wife Pat. Since the death of his son Mitchell in 2002, he has studied the problem of how the brain works in general and suicide in particular. He lives in Carmel, California. This novel presents some of his research in a more informal manner.
