“Oye, chica!”

Born and raised in Southern California, but with Cuban roots. A writer, SCBWI member, former preschool teacher and mother of three.

Fascinated by Cuban history so she writes picture books that tie in Cuban heritage. 

She has always been a detailed person and used to think it was a huge character flaw— distracted and fixated on the little things. Turns out, details are the way she connects physically, emotionally and spiritually. 

When writing, she looks for beauty in things that are often overlooked.  Even the smallest creation—like a butterfly, feather and spider—are filled with majesty and wonder. 


Nature is a canvas for inspiration. Behold—the iridescent hues from a majestic creature!
