Roberto did not start out to be a writer. The exceptionally bright son of parents who owned a coffee plantation in Guatemala, he graduated college at age 15 and promptly enrolled in medical school. There he led a protest against the use of healthy animals in laboratory experiments before graduating at age 18. Following an internship at the Menninger Foundation, he dedicated his medical career helping people with psychiatric problems and also assisted International Red Cross disaster teams as a grief counselor. In 2012 his novella The Iguana Speaks My Name, was named by Kirkus Reviews as one of the year’s top 25 independently published books of fiction for 2012. Moulon was diagnosed with inoperable cancer in 2013 and died at his home in Ajijic, Mexico in 2013.
