About Gabriel Lucatero.
Like the plague, I tend to go away and come back when your defenses are down. On my website, I archive articles upon articles with words I intend to leave for posterity. Why? Because I want to make a living out of this one day.
Oh. What is ‘this,’ you asked? It’s fiction.
I was born in Michoacan, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when I was 19 years old, looking for my very own American Dream: to become an author by writing in my second language –read my private memoirs from the beginning. Exclusively on the website.
Like so many unfortunate ruffians, I was tired of living in poverty in my native country and came running to the other side. Knowing that I was never going back, I decided to start doing something productive with my time. Therefore, instead of impregnating women, living a life of debauchery, and skipping child-support payments, I decided to keep in touch with my childlike self and stay connected to my creative side.
I’ve always been passionate about stories. This is due to my unhealthy obsession with the likes of Stephen King, The Twilight Zone, and any other genre/author that will keep me at the edge of my seat. Once I moved to The Land of Opportunity, aka the USA, I delved into the world of fiction and began writing my tales, falling into the horror and suspense genre. I also like to describe my stories as Transgressive Fiction since they are about characters who break the rules society imposes upon them.
My stories haven’t sold as much as I want, but I continue honing my craft while writing and talking too much about myself on my blog and social media. While pursuing my American Dream, I’ve also held a plethora of jobs: janitor at a retail store, cashier and manager at a fast-food joint, and was even an Uber driver for some time until someone vomited in my car, and I said, “F*** this sh*t!”
I haven’t tried prostitution because nobody will pay to see me naked.
I also have a social life, somehow. I am a member of Toastmasters and The Rotary Club. These groups allow me to get out of my cave and socialize with real people from time to time.
To conclude, if you are like me, the kind of person who likes to read the type of stories you wouldn’t tell your mom about, you are in the right place.
Welcome to my world.
P.S. Send me an email. It’s always great to hear from readers.
