A very short excerpt of my next book is available for preview at the following link:
I hope you enjoy it. Your feedback is kindly appreciated.
The telling went very well today. I was able to perform two stories for the grandparents at R.E.L. Washington Elementary School (YISD) and students and staff. The auditorium was full and they all seemed to enjoy the performance. I was also able to sell my books of The Hairy Hand Visits and even got requests for El Pájaro Cu, so that might be my next writing project.
This upcoming Sunday is Grandparents’ Day. It is celebrated the first Sunday in September after Labor Day. If you are lucky enough to still have your grandparents, please spend time with them. Show them they are important. If they are far away, give them a call or send them a card to make them know they are loved.
All of my grandparents have passed, but their love rekindles every time I retell one of their stories or recall a special moment I shared with them.
I am honored to be telling at R.E.L Washington Elementary School (YISD) this Friday, September 7, and helping to celebrate the grandparents in their school community. My Grandmother Zenaida, is the inspiration for this particular performance, El Pájaro Cu, since she always had birds in her house and loved to sing along with them.
Come join us this Saturday at the Dorris Van Doren Library for our monthly meeting from 2 to 4 PM.
This is the cover art for my next book, ¿Quién es La llorona…Who is the Weeping Woman?
Is it too creepy or scary?
