I was born and raised in Argentina during the military regime which ended with the loss of many young lives in the invasion of the Falkland Islands. Amidst the devastating effects of military government and war, reading and writing became a passion which expanded and transported my imagination with the possibility of a brighter future.
At the age of eighteen, I moved to the United States, where I studied English and started my own family. I soon discovered that the love I have for my husband and children would naturally unfold towards my European roots, leading me to become a genealogist and family historian. A decade of searching, compiling, and learning the stories of thousands of people has instilled in me a profound gratitude for the strong ties that can be achieved in families through personal sacrifice.
So it is that through fiction, Awaken explores and exposes the characteristics of true love and loyalty in times of fear, war, and finally, death. But perhaps the most captivating element in the story is the battle within the souls of the main characters as they search to know who they really are and how they are connected.
