Who is that woman in the pink ballerina outfit? And why can’t Andre Esperanza’s once photographic memory recall her identity? Andre must answer these questions after he photographs her drawing pirouettes on wet sand. The burst of 51 photos he shoots reignite painful, missing memories of a life he thought he’d left behind. They also bring US and foreign operatives calling, and Andre must decide whether to cooperate or to protect a woman he should know but can’t remember. Reluctantly, Andre will have to face how this Pink Ballerina fits into his defunct career in electronic surveillance and how she ties in with his achievements and failures, which to him pretty much look the same.

About the Author:
Eduardo Suastegui is an Electrical, Software and Systems engineer by education and training with a drive for story-telling he exercises through his photography and writing. Though he loves how efficiently photography can convey his vision, he considers writing and the power of the word as the fullest, most in-depth vehicle to explore the struggles we face as human beings. Drawing from his engineering background and life experiences, his stories span a wide spectrum of topics including technical thrillers, crime capers, science fiction, faith and church life.
Since he believes genre provides another component in the setting and context where my characters grapple with life, he does not aim at any particular genre, but rather he looks for interesting characters wherever he can find them — or meet them, as he likes to say — and let genre happen organically, as it best suits a character-driven plot. In keeping with this character-centric view, he also aims to feature and highlight his character’s voice rather than project his or create one for which he can take credit. This approach goes hand-in-hand with his overall view about artistic expression as a way to share of himself with those who experience his art.
