Meet the Author

My story begun around forty years ago, in a far, far away land... ok, not so far, just five thousand miles, in a city surrounded by water, desert and mountains, Lima. This is the city I was born and the capital of Peru. It is well-known for their vast and delicious menu, considered the Gastronomical Capital of the Americas. Dishes like Ceviche and Lomo Saltado are the most popular. This South American beauty also has some amazing archeological sites. The Nazca Lines and Machu-Picchu are worldwide recognized and the latter recently declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

If you ever travel to Peru, you must see these places before you leave.

Anyway, getting back to my story, after sixteen years of Peruvian Ceviche, my parents moved us (my three sisters and me) to a new county, US. At first, we were resistant. Change is always difficult, but we adjusted quickly. Learning the language was easier than anticipated. It took me a few months to understand my peers and a year to communicate clearly. In spite of learning the language while young, my accent and grammatical deficiencies hunts me until this day. Therefore, I apologize in advance for any quirky sentences.

As you see, English is not my first language, but I love it. Just don't ask me to pronounce the word cop, cup, or cap. I promise, it will all sound the same.

In my college years, I had an awful experience while taking English 101 (fist level). My Professor was ruthless. I even cried of frustration a couple of times (in my thirties). Consequently, I left the other required English classes for last, but I needed them to graduate. At this point in my life, I had more confidence and was ready to face another mean teacher, if necessary. However, I landed in a class taught by the most amazing Professor, Caridad McCormick. She is amazing. Not only did she had great skills, but encouraged me to write. I found a love I never thought I had. Writing became a new passion.

As an artist, I am grateful to be able to express myself through writing.
