Felene M. Cayetano


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.

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.
