The Heaven Walker is exciting, rapidly paced, filled with intrigue, and
addictive from page one to the denouement. It is the first literary
exposition of Catalonia at the height of its Mediterranean power, the
first of the oubliette (a  medieval torture chamber), and the first of the
Convivencia in Spain. The novel will open your eyes to the high middle
ages and the men and women who lived during that remarkably important
and turbulent time. As one of the great sculptors during the last half of the
twelfth century in Catalonia (southern France and northeastern Spain),
today the artwork of the Master of Cabestany is well known, but nothing
is known of his life. Heaven Walker is the fictional account of his life and times.

Heaven Walker:
The Story of the Master of Cabestany
The time, the twelfth century, is an essential
period in the modernization of Europe: a time
of the  “Convivencia” in Spain, where  Mozarabs,
Jews, and Christians  worked together translating
classical knowledge into Latin, which  detonated
the closed and dated  thinking in Europe. It is
a time of tremendous artistic achievement.

Twelfth century sculpture ranks with the greatest
sculpture of all time: Vézelay, St. Sernin, Autun,
Moissac, St. Denis, Chartres, Santiago de
Compostela, Ripoll, to name a few. All can be
visited today. It is a time of conflict between
competing classes and the church. The artwork of
the Master of Cabestany served as the skeleton of
this novel.
The location of the novel on the
Costa Brava (Spain) and in
Roussillon (France) is exciting
and real. The sites and cities
exist today, including the
amazing Sant Pere de Rodes
monastery and the Jewish Call in
Girona, Spain.
