I started writing fiction when I was 9. As a kid I wrote 6 novels on the orange sheets of paper that used to separate X-Rays. My dad brought them home for me. Fast forward a lifetime, I am now on my 7th book Poder de Mujer: Descubre quien eres para crear el éxito a tu medida which comes out in English in April 2013. I'm known for my work in education, career development & woman empowerment. I'm the founder of Latinos in College & the Red Shoe Movement. But watch out, my next book is a novel!I know I'm Latina when... I get extra service anywhere where people speak Spanish when I address them in Spanish!
