Felene M. Cayetano was born in the Central American country of Belize and migrated to Los Angeles, California at the tender age of 9. This migration experience at such a young age shaped her outlook about people, permanence and the definition of home. While seeking answers she was certain only that she loved to write poetry, read non-fiction or realistic fiction and became alive sharing those joys with others. These certainties led to self-publishing a poetry collection in 2004 and many years of schooling before returning to her birthplace and commencing a career as a librarian.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
First, I consider the subject, then read a summary based on titles that resonate from the list. After reading a little bit about the author, especially if it's a nonfiction book, and reading a preview I select the book.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No. The first I vividly recall being satisfied with is one I wrote in the eleventh grade called Flower Child.
