BioI have been writing since childhood. I began my journey as a writer with poetry and short stories. I wrote my official first book 20 years ago, but that book has yet to be published. It currently resides on my book shelves amongst the writers that have always inspired my craft. I recently published a memoir, Plantains and the 7 Plagues, A Memoir: Half-Dominican, Half-Cuban and Full Life. "Just Finn," my second book. It is a fictional story about an autistic young man, inspired by my brother who has lived with Asperger's Syndrome for over 45 years. "Just Finn" is the 1st of a 2-part series.
I currently live in Oklahoma with her husband and two teenage sons on a ranch where we raise red Angus cattle, but will soon be moving further east to be closer to family! I am also a photographer and an avid reader.

Meet Finnegan MacManus, or just “Finn” as he prefers to be called. He is autistic. His life began when he was 18 years old. He was born 18 years earlier, but he had never truly lived. Since birth he had been different and his parents were indifferent toward him. His mother never bonded with her infant son. He never cried or smiled. As he got older he would scream and throw his arms around when something did not go his way. And nothing ever went his way. The world was a series of confusing sounds, uncomfortable situations, unbearable textures and complete chaos. His father could barely stand the sight of his son and as a young boy he was sent to hospitals and group homes for the mentally disabled. He spent his childhood between strangers and a house of strangers.
