Tell us about yourself and your books.:
I'm just a God-loving and social justice obsessed chica originally from Puerto Rico. I also have an undergraduate degree in English Writing and a graduate degree in Social Work. My main goal is to write to inspire others and give a voice to issues I'm passionate about. I've currently written two books: "Rise in Love: A Poetry Chapbook" and "Social Justice Advocacy 101: How to Become a Social Justice Advocate from A to Z". The first was inspired by a romantic relationship, which then led to a book about different kinds of love in my world. The second is an easy to follow guide to help readers start advocating for issues their passionate about.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I'll stop anywhere to write. It doesn't matter if I'm at work, a family member's house, on a date, hanging out with friends, or in the car. I'm always writing down my thoughts, ideas, and lines on my work notebook, random pieces of scrap paper I beg from my family, on my phone even though I'm with people, or dictating to Siri.
What authors have influenced you?
There are so many! Julia Alvarez, Sandra Cisneros, and Esmeralda Santiago are some of my biggest influences. However, my favorite book is "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I would say to write for the sake of writing itself. If you write while thinking about literary criticism, you'll find yourself freezing up.
