About the author
My name is Gonzalo S. Rey, and I love to see how people overcome their limits. I write novels to help people on their spiritual path, so they can find their most intimate essence and develop psychologically and spiritually.
The path until I found my vocation was not easy. I have worked in several countries (Kenya, the UK…), had many jobs, studied two university degrees, but there was a longing of the soul that I was not fulfilling... until I found that writing novels and teach spirituality was my mission in this life.
I have written the novel “The Calling” which narrates the “hero´s journey” in the Iberian Peninsula during the 13th Century.
Writing this novel has been a great adventure and has brought me many gifts. I have had the opportunity to delve into an extraordinary time in the history of Spain, the 13th century, which is unknown for many people. Also, it was incredible to walk a 400 km trek between Teruel and Toledo, in a pilgrimage, which allowed me to discover so many inspirational places. It also enabled me to research the history of Spain in a way that I would not have otherwise been afforded. The novel also has helped me to discover Toledo, the city where I live, and where I feel at home.
Gonzalo Rey (1973) holds a degree in Business Administration (University ICADE – Madrid, Spain) and a degree in Law (National Distance Education University of Spain), and graduate studies in Philosophy (National Distance Education University of Spain). After working in Kenya and London, he started his spiritual journey. He has studied the Jewish Mystical Tradition that germinated in Spain during the medieval ages, which is the foundation of this novel.
