Finally,full-time writing.... and full-time grandfather. Not an easy task for this former clinical psychologist. Nevertheless, what a great combination in a great life!


Hello, my name is Alejandro Canton-Dutari, but my pen name is Alex Canton-Dutari.
I was born in a small town in the Republic of Panama -- Santiago de Veraguas -- but I live in Panama City.
My graduate studies were in clinical psychology and my area of concentration in my workdays was clinical sexology, where I dwelled in the mysteries of human behavior and especially sexual orientation.
During my professional years I published many scientific articles on my area of work, which included my first novella Machito.
Upon my retirement, which coincided with my wife's demise, I decided to try creative writing. So far I have published several novellas, short stories and even a few poems. 
I am an avid reader, and have been administering Book Junkie Reviews and News -- a very small readers' group.
Traveling has also been my passion, and I have been all over the world. Now my companion is my cane, which I call "el bastón viajero", which means something like the traveling cane.
Thank you for having read these lines. I hope to learn from you as I believe that intelectual growth never stops.


Naci y vivo en Ciudad de Panama, Panama... Tengo tres hijos y seis nietos y soy de creencias y acciones humanitarias... La mayoria de mis novelas cortas estan basadas en la vida real ya que considero que he tenido una vida que debe quedar en el recuerdo -- por lo menos cuando mi memoria de ella se haya debilitado.

Mi esposa fallecio hace casi una decada, y desde ese tiempo -- coincidiendo con mi jubilacion de psicologo clínico -- me he dedicado a escribir a tiempo completo.  Mas, continúo con mis labores de abuelo a tiempo parcial.







Birth Place: Panama City,  Panama
