After graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in chemical engineering and a minor in physics, Marcos has been lucky enough to have not one but two dream jobs. He began flexing his creativity muscles during his time as a food scientist at a dessert think tank, specializing in helping clients find solutions to their frozen dessert problems (read: professional ice cream maker). After leaving this career, he began a new career as a strength and conditioning coach (what he calls his “retirement”). He has been a coach for over five years and enjoys interacting with a diverse range of people.
Marcos believes in training his creativity muscles through storytelling. Like exercise, he believes in showing up every day to get the work done. His hope is to learn from every experience and let it shine through the stories he tells.
He doesn’t have a plan for his future. But can he fulfill an ancient Mayan prophecy from centuries past?
On a work trip overseas in Germany, Jesus Chan’s life turns upside down when he accidentally steals one of four ancient Mayan texts from a library. Back home in Mexico with the relic and afraid to lose his job at the museum, he unwittingly unleashes a shadow jaguar who tells him about his people’s lost abilities.
In order to restore magic permanently, Jesus sets out to collect the three remaining texts from distant cities before the spring equinox just weeks away. But others want the artifacts, and he’s not the only one with magic…
Can the young magician collect the ancient Mayan texts and unleash the magic of his ancestors forever?
Jesus Chan and the Return of Mayan Magic is the fast-paced first book in the Indigenous Magic urban fantasy series. If you like ordinary people turned into heroes and unique magical abilities, then you’ll fall under the spell of Marcos Antonio Hernandez’s new tale.
