About Me

 

I was born in New York a few years ago and raised in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I’ve been blessed with a wonderful life and family.  Among my blessings was being a mother to three: two sons and a daughter.

My life was not all honky dory. Like everyone else I’ve had many ups and downs.  After a failed attempt at a restaurant we moved to Florida for a job promised to my husband. It was a fresh start for us. So with three children ages 9, 8 and 7 in tow and $2,500 in our pocket we took the leap.

Tragedy struck our family in July 2007 when my oldest son was killed in a pedestrian accident. Life  was and has never been the same since then. But I tried to make the best of it because I knew that my son would not want me to have it any other way.

In living my son’s dreams I returned to college in my late 40’s and studied accounting. I currently work as a part time accountant. Sometimes I question my choice. Maybe I should’ve studied literature. Don’t get me wrong, I love accounting; but I also love writing – well, I discovered it after my son’s death.

I’ve been married for 32 years (33 in November) to a wonderful man and, besides my angel in heaven, I have a 29-year-old daughter, a 28-year-old son and a  5-year-old dachshund/chihuahua mix who is the king of our family!
