About Me

I was born during the cold season on the first month of the year January on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico in Vega Baja. I was raised for most of my childhood and early teen years in the northern parts of New York City and Massachusetts from the age of one. At age fifteen, my father due to medical reasons moved us up to Lakeland Florida. I come from a large family that consists of eight brothers and three sisters. Even though I always felt as if part of my life while growing up was robbed in some ways, I love life and above all, I am proud of the person that I have become in life. Unfortunately, I was raised in a maladjusted form sort of way as well as in a dysfunctional abusive home. But yet odd as it may sound I was raised in a religious environment from a very young age. Based on an early unexplained childhood spiritual experience I solely believe in both heart and mind in the true existence as the power of the almighty God above heaven, creator of all things. I went to elementary school in Long Island, NY, and went to middle school in Leominster and Worcester Massachusetts. I went to high school in Taunton, Massachusetts. From 2009-to 2011 I took an online course at the University of Central Florida studying the field of writing fiction. My father was a Sergeant War Veteran who fought against Korea. My father was a cold-hearted frigid man, he passed away back on October 3, 1989, at age 59. He died a few hours after major surgery in Tampa Florida. My elderly sick mother who suffered from Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, high blood pressure, and congestive heart failure resided in a very nice nursing home in Orlando Florida. Unfortunately, she passed away from heart disease on October 16, 2022. She was 90 years old and is deeply missed by us all. For personal reasons, not all my siblings are close to one another, I however love them all in my way. There are a few of my siblings that live their life with a mild delusional mind streak which has been characterized by holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument. I believe this behavior comes not just from the way we were abusively raised but also from the lack and refusal of psychiatry help, which is unfortunate. My parents were both Jehovah's Witnesses and my siblings were all raised as such but some of us are estranged from the religion. I am happily married to my long-time husband Jaime. Together we have a small family which also includes our cat, Mindy. Unfortunately, we had one beautiful infant daughter that died due to a heart defect along with other medical issues. As a person I have suffered from depression since back in my childhood/teen years which was mainly caused as brought on due to how I was abysmally raised. And even in the present as an adult, I still often can't seem to beat that depression. When I think about my past I feel saddened because I did things that I am not proud of, but it is from those errors that I have both learned and matured not to repeat such mistakes. Since my childhood, I have always had the desire to write and someday become an author. You can see some of these things that I write about in my Site Blogs. I consider myself a dilettante, a lover of writing. Writing is not only one of my strongest passions in my life but is part of my life especially since it is very therapeutic for me in many ways. Some of my books are published By Dorrance Publishers,‎ and BooxAi, while some are self-published. I do try to keep my books easy to understand for the public readers. I am also the recipient of both a Silver & Gold Book Award Winner and have been interviewed and featured on YouTube and audio radio by Triangle Media and the Mike Wagner show about my books as life. Based on some positive good book reviews I am confident and optimistic that I will improve as progress shortly. I enjoy walks on the beach after sundown, gardening, reading, roller skating, Latin dancing, going out to the theatres, and spending time with my cats. My goal in life is to be seen as a good role model for others in the public eye and to inspire others. I currently am content with life and thankful to God who I feel has blessed me in so many ways in my life. For personal reasons, I am very much against Child Abuse and a huge fan, and advocate supporter of the Child Abuse guidelines and its laws.
