Ricardo Chévere

Born and raised in Caguas, Puerto Rico, Ricardo Chévere learned English, only as a second language. All of his earlier writings are in Spanish, and his fantasy/adventure novel, DRAGONS, is not only his first published work but also his first one in English.

Ricardo was enrolled in martial arts classes at the age of seven. His favorite, Chinese Kung Fu, influenced his views in life more so than anything else. For many years, he was exposed to the oldest of Oriental philosophies, and he eagerly and repeatedly read the ancient classics, like The Art of War by Sun Tzu, the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, and the I Ching by an author unknown, although it’s been credited to Huang Ti.

In 1998, Ricardo received a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education from the University of Puerto Rico, where he made the Dean’s List. After college, he moved to the state of Florida, where, for almost a decade, he taught Spanish to high school students.

On February 27, 2010, “Bellas Artes y Cultura Hispana” of Central Florida honored Ricardo Chévere with the Julia De Burgos Award for his early success as a new Hispanic author in the world of the written word.
