This is the coolest image! I have to admit that I couldn’t be happier. Why? Well, in a few short weeks, Shadow Visions, the second book in the Shadow Warriors series will be released! Hopefully strring interest in Aztec/ Mayan mythology.
An awesome shot of light rising from the temple straight into outspace. Is it to contact aliens or ancient gods?
I have no clue but to me the image evokes thoughts of Aztec Gods, end of the world 2012, good versus evil, and the Aztec Calendar.
All so very prevelent in the Shadow Warrior series!

“Dear Dios: A Cuban-American Movie”byVanessa Libertad Garcia
I once gave my feature screenplay Dear Dios, in one of its early draft stages, to a good friend for reading and critique as she had been working in entertainment for over a decade. The film follows an aspiring photojournalist with a lust for bi-women and malt liquor as she spirals out of control in the hipster club scene and turns bottom-of-the-barrel temp for an LA celebrity tabloid rag. The protagonist is a Cuban-American lesbian named “Dolores Amorosa Marti.” After much anticipation, the verdict came in; she loved it. Great news! … Read More »

Thank you for having me. I’m so happy to get involved in celebrating my Latina roots amongst other creative writers.
Originally, I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about why we need more Hispanic Literature, whether it’s romance, literary, fantasy, or mystery. But you already know that. Then,the other day as I was browsing through Publisher’s Weekly, I came across an article that talked about how major Hispanics, such as Mario Lopez and Perez Hilton, will be releasing picture books. Congratulations to them. It’s nothing new that publishers are trying to capitalize on celebrities, but then what happens to … Read More »

Antonio Banderas is a classic beauty, he only gets better with age. Still, I loved him as ayoung man, firm, hauty and sexy as hell. He evokes a Spanish serande and makes me want to take up Flamenco just so I can swing my skirt up an d around him. Simply charming and elegant.
He can be mysterious and sexy and the next minute, funny, adorable and just so loveable. Puss in Boots rocks! Check out this bad kitty in the movie trailer for PUSS IN BOOTS.
Wish he would come along and grab me up onto his … Read More »

Seeing him with a beer makes me want a cold one right now.
Oh, yes I like it. He can have me screaming for more.
Add in a double scoop of Pitbull and enjoy!
