About the Author

I'm a Hispanic living in South Florida with my redneck husband from Texas and our "half breed" son, who is actually the reason I started writing again after years of celibacy. My son loves stories, but not the kind you can read in an existing book. No, he'd rather make up a story, complete with our own illustrations. So, thank you, Son, for igniting a flame I had let go out.

I also live with two dogs: a neurotic Border Collie we call Nitro and a midget Rottweiler named Nisa.

I have always found my sanctuary at the beach and in music and writing. I wish I could write rhymes so I could become a famous rapper, but rhyming is completely lost on me. My son surpassed me in the rhyming game by the time he was four. This is something I am very proud of.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Management and a Master's in Human Resource Management. I have held several jobs, from picking up dog poop to upper management positions. And now I am hoping to leave the business world behind so I can live full time in a world that does not exist until I place my fingers on a keyboard and bring them to fruition.

Book 2 starts off 5 months after Book 1 – ‘Life’s A Cappella’ left off.  This book is written in Trent and Nate’s POV (Nate is the brother Erin (not in blood) who you meet in book 1), Shayla also pops into the POV sometimes, but I don’t want to write too much and spoil the books for new readers. Erin is now studying for her Master’s in Nursing, and this means she is very busy and this means she is neglecting Trent a little, which he is finding frustrating to say the least, plus the fact that they have a house guest staying with them is cramping their alone time too. The secondary characters are all there – Nate and one of Erin’s friends Tonya are getting to know each other and this where I start to struggle with describing the book without giving too much away. All I can say is that I read this book in 2 hours, that it will, like the first book  be on the emotional roller coaster, and you are left with a cliff hanger… Ms Smith sure had me sobbing in places but I am hopeful that Book 3 will bring resolve.  Pretty please Yessi!

Yessi Smith's Our A Cappella (OAC) picks up five months after Erin and Trent's wedding in Life's A Cappella (LAC). It is told from multiple POVs: Trent, Nate and Shayna. I love being able to revisit our favorite characters! We see Erin as she is struggling to balance family life with school and work. Trent, as he is trying to manage work and family and also pressing Erin for more attention in their new marriage. Nate has been spending a lot of time with Tonya and has been staying with Erin and Trent and also seems to be carrying a heavy weight on his shoulders. And Shayna has her own unique perspective on all she sees! Yessi Smith once again captures the character's emotional ups and downs in this book. It was so easy to get lost in them and not want to put the book down. OAC is that perfect bridge that takes us from LAC, catches us up on Trent, Erin and Shayna and then starts to transition us over to Nate. I think that OAC helps to whet our appetite for what is to come in the next story. We had already adored Nate from LAC but he just became so much hotter and sexier here and now we are also rooting for him, for Tonya and have a NEED to make sure that everything turns out alright. If you read Life's A Cappella then this is a no-brainer read for you. And if you haven't, then please go one-click Life's A Cappella because it is an absolute MUST READ book IMO and then read Our A Cappella! You won't be sorry!
