Latina writer of books for kids of all ages.

Hi friends!

If you are a writer, if you love one, or if you ever wanted to be a writer, please listen up. You have 36 hours to show some serious love for the readers and writers who live in Virginia.

I’m a children’s book author, I live in Richmond, and I’m a proud  member (and employee) of James River Writers, a non profit dedicated to the literary arts. For almost ten years, we’ve been building a community that values books, ideas and expression because we believe that an interesting city has writers – lots of them.

This year JRW is part of The Amazing Raise,  a 36-hour on line giving event run through the Community Foundation. We’re one of 350 area non profits  “racing” for donations — and for the insane cash prizes that the foundation has dreamed up for us.  Take the Night Owl prize, for instance. $1,000 goes to the organization that gets the most donations between 2 am and 5 am. See?

There are all sorts of perks, but this year’s grand prize is $10K from the Foundation. For the record: If JRW wins, we plan to fund all our youth writing programs the way we have always dreamed of doing.

I’ve made my donation, but I’m only one person. I need lots of partners on this one. If you’ve enjoyed my books, please consider helping me out by donating to JRW Oct 5 and 6. Click here to help.
