I believe anyone with a passion for writing and/or illustrating can become an author/illustrator. As a mother of 4 children, I see my children as my biggest inspiration. To see them explore the world through their own eyes makes me want to be a part of it. And by creating children's books, I can make that dream possible. I live in chesilhurst, NJ. A nice quiet wooded area where I can enjoy the peace with my beautiful and blessed family. My husband is my best friend. I met him shortly after I was born. Who knew how fate would plan it's welcome? I have two boys and two girls: Ivan, Juliana, Ezequiel Jr., and Angelina. My favorite foods are anything that has cheese (including lasagna and pizza). My hobbies include: drawing, playing with my kids, reading, and eating cheese. As to my siblings, I have four older sisters and one younger brother. As a pre-teen, I used to be a pitcher in softball thanks to my father, who trained me day and night. My mother taught me to cook and told me to always look presentable early in the morning, just incase we'd get unexpected visitors. On occasion, you would catch me in my pajama pants around the house. Unless I know my mother is coming to visit. Shhh, don't tell her I told you that. Before bedtime I would stuff my face in a good book and immediately become a part of that imaginary world. I consider it a free vacation to paradise. Except for the price you pay at the book store, of course. Anywho, I hope you enjoy this book with your children as much as I will with my own.
