Mexican Books

Hola. I wrote two Novels set mostly in Mexico. The Mexican Girlfriend is a contemporary commercial YA fiction about 17-year-old Selena wanting to find true love. The Mexican Dream is a contemporary YA fiction about 17--year-old Xochitl wanting to be a famous author. Both  include the beauty of Mexican food, music, literature, folklore, culture, history and locations. I enjoyed writing it, learning about Mexico, while listening to hundreds of wonderful Mexican songs. 

My novel pays a tribute to Selena,  the late American-Mexican singer.

Here two very different singers: from Mexico City and from Sinaloa. Sheyla from Sinaloa appears a few times in the storyline of my novel.
