In a land far away, with a castle, a Catheral, city walls, created and named by the Romans in 48AD the town of Lindum Colonia drew breath. Eventhough through the years, it has changed hands like a used car. Nothing really exciting happen in Lincoln until the birth of me.
One cold christmas eve, a baby girl was born and placed under the christmas tree at 26 Knight street Lincoln. A present that keeps on giving, so forty years later I decided to give you my stories.
Written with you in mind!

I grew up in an extremely superstitious environment, a mixture of both orthodox religious and dark pagan beliefs, and was witness to a large number of unusual events, what most people would call supernatural. Early on I understood there were unseen forces at work in even the simplest of things and actually “felt” them when they were either unusually strong or my subconscious was more aware. Attempting to explain my experiences, even to myself, seemed futile. At age 15, I began studying Philosophy, Esotericism, Mysticism and was eventually led back to the principles of Modern Physics – Particle Theory, Relativity and Quantum Physics – and then “back down” to ordinary human perception. I used logic to ... read more

Don't know why people always write about themselves in third person - "Logan is a native New Yorker and lives with his wife and a plant named Harold near Central Park." Yet they do.
The truth is that I actually am a native New Yorker and I do live with my wife and a plant named Harold near Central Park. And professionally, I'm an intellectual property attorney and a commercial real estate appraiser.

My name is Marco Cultrera and I finally figured out what I want to be in life: a writer.
In hindsight, I should have known all along. Since I was a small child, I was a ferocious reader and generally obsessed with fiction, especially serial. I remember consuming every type of story I could put my hands on: books, comics, TV shows, and movies. I've always loved to get lost in made up worlds, populated by fictional people.
Don't worry, though, I'm not a recluse with no friends and suspicious hygienic habits. Not quite, reality has mostly been good to me. I always had my share of close friends, I just chose them among like minded people, and it was with them that I discovered my passions.

Fin da ragazzo dimostra uno spiccato interesse per la musica, la letteratura e, in genere, per tutte le cose in grado di ispirargli una forte passione emozionale. Inizia a scrivere alcuni racconti, per lo più autobiografici, ma verso i quattordici anni l’amore per la musica prevale sulle altre passioni tanto da divenire, quasi, il filo conduttore della sua adolescenza. Nel 1980 si iscrive alla SIAE ottenendo prima la qualifica di paroliere e poi quella di compositore.
