Children's Book Writer

Hello and welcome to my website. I’m a children's book writer who likes to write stories that reflect my heritage. I’m so appreciative and delighted by the positive responses my work has received, and I want to foster that connection with a wider audience. I’m looking forward to sharing my future stories as they come to fruition.

Stories have always been a part of my life. I remember listening to my abuelita's ghost stories, stories she would wait until dark to tell. I also remember my abuelito telling us about his encounter with Pancho Villa's men and about his adventures working in the fields in the United States. Stories have always surrounded me. My ancestors had a skill for storytelling. I too have stories to tell and I can't wait for kids to read them.
