Welcome 2013!

Happy New Year everyone!  It’s been a heck of a year for quite a few of us.  My family alone has had its shares of ups and down this year, ending with a sadness that no one expected.

2013 is our chance to change that!  

I have been blessed to know a lot of truly special women in my lifetime. I want to mention just three today:

My mother Laura, who would stay up into the night after working all day and then taking care of house and home just to write.  I am thankful to still have her in my life at 82 years young.

My mother in law, Paulita, who passed away to young on December 16th. She raised a family of 8 and an extended family made up of in laws, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She is sorely missed.

My Tia Ramonita who even past 90 years of age would ask about me specifically and when she would be coming to my house…God rest your soul.

All three women encouraged me in every way and in different ways, regardless of where my ideas took me, be it painting, drawing or writing.  I value their words and hear them today.  I still relish the talks I have with my mother, even when she’s being ornery, I hope that never changes.

There is one young lady who I haven’t mentioned and that is my daughter, Angelina.  She has always been there for me. Thank you baby…

All of this being said, I know that they are and would be proud that I met my goals this year to be published.

And last but not least, where would I be without my love of almost 23 years?  Thank you my love for your never ending support and love… and bring on 2013!  

In the works? 
A sequel to Beauty of Fear tentatively titled Silence of Fear.  
A young adult sci-fi/fantasy book featuring fifteen year old Ariana Castillo, a girl who discovered her destiny and all that was possible when she finally decided to BELIEVE…
And of course, I will continue updating my fanfics on Fanfiction.net

Links to my book, kindle and print are available on this site and on my Facebook page.
