Ecuador. What was supposed to be a dream holiday turned into a nightmare for a group of foreign tourists when their plane crashed in the Amazon rainforest. Having waited in vain for a couple of days for help to arrive, the survivors of the crash decided to set off on a daring journey determined to get out of the jungle alive. But while pushing on, unaware, they entered a territory inhabited by isolated Indian tribes hostile to outsiders. A territory where probably the fabulous treasures destined for the last Inca emperor Atahualpa’s ransom, had been hidden. As it soon turned out their nightmare was just beginning. Will they ever get out of the jungle alive?

My passion for reading, travelling, meeting new people, learning foreign languages, experiencing new cultures combined with my love of adventure inspired me to write my debut novel When the Jaguar Sleeps. I published it under a pen name J.A. Kalis.
It has been always my dream to write my own novel, but somehow, for years, I wasn’t able to get around to it. Finally, an opportunity presented itself and I grabbed it. One day an idea for a story popped into my head, where it began to linger and grow. I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. Slowly, scenes and characters took shape in my brain. And so I began to write my thoughts down. A year later I completed my debut novel, the adventure thriller, When The Jaguar Sleeps. It turned out to be a great writing adventure. I loved it so much that from then on, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a full-time writer.
Although English is not my native language, I chose to write my novels in English. Presently, I am working on my second novel, also in English. It will be another action packed, fast paced thriller but set in a different country than the first one. Or to be more precise, set in two different countries.
