Freelance writer and translator
My name is Damian Furfuro. I’m a freelance writer and translator. I write fiction, create content for websites, blogs and translate technical texts. I have two books published, a book of short stories published by the Argentine publishing house “Niña Pez Ediciones” called “Waking Up In The Dark”. The other one is a novel called “The Big room — Brief Journey Through The Unconscious”. I’m currently translating both books into English.
My book of stories called “Waking Up In The Dark”, contains fourteen stories about childhood adventures; deal with disagreements; the separations that are generated both with distance and with the passage of time; the loss of the dearest and the unexpected reunions. The protagonists of these stories sometimes feel that hope is lost, that love is over, that their world is falling apart. But moved by an internal fire, they manage to find new forces to recover the lost and understand that they are made in the depths of their being.
Since I was a child I was interested in drawing, music, and writing. I studied music at the music school, played guitar since I was fourteen and composed songs in various bands of the rock scene in my city. Later I studied languages, translation and I did technical studies in communication technologies. As an adult I built my own company where I have been a consultant and supplier of products of several leading brands in the telecommunications market for over twenty years.When I got to a certain point in my life I felt I had lost something along the way. I was sad, empty and I felt that I needed something. But I was lucky and I recover a childhood affinity, reconnected with literature, began to wrote again and I felt happy again…
