Eduardo "Eddy" Calcines


As a man of faith and family, Eduardo Calcines knows what the power of love can do in the lives of those who hunger for it with open arms.

Born in the fall of 1955, in the barrio known as Glorytown in Cienfuegos, Cuba, Calcines was born into a loving family whose heart and soul were his maternal Abuelo’s [Grandparents]. His childhood was regrettably interrupted by the Communist revolution and he grew up fast during the first ten years of the Castro regime.

This experience inspired Calcines to share his story and write his first book, the memoir Leaving Glorytown: One Boy’s Struggle Under Castro. At 14 years old, Calcines, his father, mother and sister, finally escaped Castro “gulag” for a better life in the United States of America.  In 1974, after a 5 year stay in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Calcines family moved south to Tampa, Florida, where he resides with his own family today.

Calcines is presently working on his follow-up book to LG, under the working title of The Salmon Run, a book based on the freedom of forgiveness. 

As an immigrant, he celebrates his Hispanic roots, yet he appreciates the value of being a free American!
