Joe Castillo I love a visual inspirational story! I write, share, paint, and create stories in sand for live audiences. Mexico City was where I was born, grew up and learned to love art and stories. The schools I almost flunked out of, were; High School, Ringling College of Art and Design, Florida Bible College and Asbury Seminary. Many of the hats I have worn include: advertiser, publisher, pastor, entrepreneur, writer, artist and storyteller. I now wear a beret, and I wrote this story for you. My storytelling artwork was born out of a struggle to forgive which I wrote about in my first book, The Face of Christ. SandStory has been my greatest adventure in Storytelling. I use sand, light and music to engage and inspire audiences all over the world. These stories have been performed in over twenty countries for churches, conferences, Fortune 500 companies, world leaders, CBS, NBC, the BBC and reached the finals on America's Got Talent. I am married to my Glad Girl, Cindy, have four kids, eight grandkids and love living just south of Atlanta, Georgia in a new town for creatives called Trilith. If you are nearby, stop and visit.

"As a constant overthinker, I often become weighed down by thoughts that overwhelm me. Love Letters encouraged me to be able to see my own life as a journey. It is a great relief to realize that my life can be a part of something beautiful, bigger and much more significant than I could even imagine!"Lydia Grace Barbee, Digital 3D Animator, Student and avid reader.
"All my books are about telling stories. 'Love Letters' is a romance woven into an adventure about ancient letters based on the love story that God told. That is the best story ever written.
