Agent info

I love to read magical realism/fantasy stories. Therefore, naturally, I write fantasy. The Ancestors’ Secrets series, Protected By The Falcon and Chosen By The Sword are available in eBooks, prints, and audio books and the first part of the Ancestors’ Secrets series is available in Spanish.
I also write fun, educational, bilingual books for children 4-12 about acceptance, friendship, family, and moral values. Look, I Can Talk With My Fingers is available in English and Spanish. This book is about respecting and accepting people with disability. Pico, The Pesky Parrot, is an illustrated bilingual book that delivers an important message to children, not to judge anyone before we get to know them. A Basketful of Kittens is a beautifully illustrated children’s book about a heartwarming adventure and how to deal with bullies. Asthma Relief introduces traditional and alternative treatments as well as Grandma’s remedies to ease asthma symptoms.

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I read was about a selfish goose "Full of himself Gedeon"
I learned that selfish animals and people end up being alone in life, and I learned to accept people as they are and respect their beliefs.
How do you approach cover design?
I design my own book covers.
