LLVT is a Spanish citizen born of a Danish mother in Chicago, Illinois. The author’s first comedic effort was a comic strip about her fifth grade teacher and a rat. Perhaps this (and a very forgiving teacher) led to a merit based scholarship in the sixth grade for wordily gifted children. Being a Spanish-English bilingual has influenced her unusual verbal style almost as much as her penchant for English comedy. LLVT has been writing ever since but this is her first officially published work.
Although fictional, the events in SPANISH ANGST are true to life and draw very heavily on the author’s personal experiences of living and trying to work in Madrid. Over the last twelve years in Madrid the writer has worked in as many business sectors in positions as diverse as Marketing Manager, Waitress, Customer Service Agent, Campaign Support Volunteer, Lawyer and consultant. The author’s qualifications include a BA in English Literature from the University of Illinois, a Law degree from NIU, an MBA from IEDE in Madrid, and a slew of smaller certifications that seemed to make her truly unemployable. However; the author is currently making a go in a new business sector in sunny Scotland.
