Hmmm... what to say about the self...
I grew up in the Dominican Republic, on a healthy diet of romance novels, comic strips, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's books, and the strict watch of my mother. I have a doctorate in leadership in higher education and work as a public librarian.
As a librarian, working with children inspires me to produce works that celebrate our culture, honor our people, and amplify underrepresented stories. I hope to inspire young readers to follow their passions and never take no for an answer.
I live in New York with an untamed Shih Tzu, Toby, and a much attached Chihuahua, Maya. I spend my free time thinking (and drafting) about books to write, or painting, crocheting, or crying over abused dogs.
