About the Book

Spiritual Historical Novel. A-Ma is a historical spiritual novel set in the 17th century Macau that follows lives and spiritual insights of settlers of this little peninsula in the middle of China. A-Ma main protagonist is Ama, an African alchemist, Goddess, a guru, a lover, a story-teller that inspires and gathers artists, preachers, priests, philosophers from all around the world within the magic settings of her coffee house. She believes in a spiritual truth that we all can live our highest potential, discovering the gold within. Traveling through space and time, we find ourselves in the midst of an amazing blend of Chinese, Portuguese and Africans that live together on this little peninsula. This magic place, that is rapidly growing as a centre of trade offers a mixing pot for the highest alchemy practice ever, the alchemy of humanity, creating an energy matrix that will change the lives of generations to come.



Ama is the Bodhisattva of our story, she is materialized in a female body, during 16th century Macao (China), with a life of an ordinary person, she represents a female that sleeps in every one of us, Yin of Creation, a wisdom guide that with her purity extinguishes thirst of our souls’ longings. She lives at a time of amazing changes within Macao that is in the center of this spiritual spiral that is to influence generations to come.


Ruben is a Jesuit Priest living in Macao. The 16th and 17th Century events are tip-toeing through Europe like an amazing Giant would, shaking the roots of all the past beliefs, leaving huge finger prints all throughout the scientific work, and throughout the religious structures. He lives during the time of the first printed books, the time when the Bible is for the first time publicly questioned, the time of trials in the name of God, against progress and science and against individuals that are ahead of their time. He is a contemporary of Giordano Bruno, Campanella, Da Vinci and Shakespeare.

He is Ama's and Ottavio's friend and he frequents Ama's coffee house that proves to be an essential space for instigating the change. The transition into the Age of Reason needed a place where all are equal, where every-single-one can pay his bill, where any-one can sit, talk and listen. Ama's coffee-house was visited by passers-by, scholars, teachers, and students, all sitting on the floor or low benches reading and discussing the purpose of their existence. Ama's magic space was always full of story-telling, full of inspiration and mental exchange.

Father Benedict is a scientist and a Jesuit Priest, he is Ottavio’s and Ama’s best friend and he is fascinated by Chinese customs, Chinese way of life, and philosophy. His main mission is the merge of Eastern and Western science and philosophy. He tells us: 'Every-body and every-thing on Earth live under the influences of Yin and Yang. Every single rock or plant or a water source hide within it a mixture of these two properties and for Life to manifest in its fullest potential, their proportions must be right. If there is too much heat or too much cold the earth will not be fertile and diseases will prevail and people will not live in harmony. '

Ruben is in love with Ama. He takes us through his own journey of discoveries of Life, Love and Human Alchemy. 'My Love for Jesus, Truths of Religion, and the quest for Self-Knowledge led me to choose this path - the path that demanded extreme Faith, extreme Sacrifice and extreme Hardship, the path of a Spiritual Warrior. Like all the others, I took the vow of poverty, and the vow of refusal of external honors, material worlds did not interest me.
When I realised I am in love, it was way too late for any struggle my mind would have wished to put up. I was completely hooked to what she was. Love I felt for Ama was the deepest and closest feeling I have ever experienced to the feeling of complete devotion I felt for Christ and his teaching. Loving Ama was closest I have ever been to God.'
