Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club Teleconference with Eleanor Parker Sapia and Maria Duenas

On July 27, I had the honor and pleasure of being interviewed by fellow puertorriqueña, Julia Abrantes, the Literary Relations Coordinator with Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club for the Conversations with Comadres teleconference with an Additional Conversation with María Dueñas, author of the novel, The Heart Has Its Reasons.

What a wonderful experience it was chatting with and getting to know Julia and María! My heartfelt thanks to Las Comadres Para Las Americas, Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club, and the Association of American Publishers for selecting A Decent Woman as July 2015 Book of the Month, where I join a long line of talented Latin@ authors.
