About :   Chasing Rabbits

Plans change but a naïve Rudy Dell is confident that working with the children of the pediatric oncology unit will not be a challenge. His only difficulty might be finding time to prepare for an upcoming test, or so he believes. But there is another test coming, one he knows nothing about and that has nothing to do with his academic ability, his drive or determination. Unbeknownst to him, he will be faced with a formidable task, as he learns about life and death from the most unlikely teachers. His patients, the children of the oncology unit, who will show him that he might not be quite prepared for the upcoming weeks, and maybe not be quite prepared to become a doctor.


About Rodolfo Del Toro

A doctor for more than twenty-five years, Rodo never intended to be a one. On the contrary, during his early years, he dreamt of becoming a musician, screenwriter, or even a film director. Despite having a fulfilling professional life and a fantastic family, Rodo felt an urge to do something different, to create. Thus in 2015, after a particularly interesting 2014, he decided to sit and write. Unbeknownst to him, it would take four years to write and publish his first work, Departure Point, a niche piece. It�s a story he is quite proud of, despite the fact that he concedes that it is plagued with far too many mistakes. Nevertheless, writing and publishing was a rewarding experience. With many hard lessons learned; he realize how little he knew and still had to learn about writing and publishing. This knowledge, or rather lack thereof, helped him approach the writing of his second book, Chasing Rabbits. Not only did it give him newfound determination, it also allowed him to better navigate the road, or at least avoid the previous pitfalls. Chasing Rabbits was published in March 2020, and despite the challenges 2020 brought forth, it has received great reviews. Today, Rodo continues to write and get the word out on his works; when time permits it. He is currently working on his next book, Surviving Jane. When away from the word processor, he spends his time between his private practice and a part-time medical school teaching appointment. He cherishes the time he gets to spend with his wife and daughters, as well as the dog he specifically asked them not to get! Every so often, he steals time to pursue his writing, or what his wife believes are very unhealthy obsessions with electric guitars and old Land Rover Defenders!
