I found this site when I was searching for news on my cousin, Hollywood actor Rudy Ramos. I'm not sure if I belong--feel free to kick me off!
As an independent writer, I am always searching for ways to reach my readers. I have not been able to reach Hispanic readers, and it bothers me because I think Hispanic women would really like my books. Sample chapters can be read on my www.JanelleMerazHooper.com website. If you read them, write to me! Note: My newest book, Bears in the Hibiscus, is not based on my Hispanic community at home. But it's a good read!
Sadly, I do not understand Spanish. My mother denies it, but I maintain the position that she thought I was too dumb to learn two languages. It might be true. I have a stack of Spanish language books and, so far, have picked up very little.
Always my best, Janelle
