I have spent the last few days checking the shipping status for my brother’s book of short stories, Ramitas, to get here. This is a collection of short stories in Spanish inspired by his upcoming novel Mangle. It got here a day late but it’s finally here!
It was really annoying seeing everybody receiving it before me. I heard my family and friends saying they got it but mine still didn’t get here. They all got theirs in a week, maybe two, while mine took three, but who cares? I got it today and I can start reading tonight. I can’t wait to read the stories I have heard him talking about for more than a year.
I don’t think these stories could have been published at a better time. I think we’re all looking for something to take our minds off the coronavirus. We all need something to entertain us while we spend all day, every day at home. I really want something to read before going to sleep and help fall asleep thinking about something other than the virus or what I’m going to do at home the next day.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
