We the Dreamers” describes the journey of immigrating to a new place through the eyes of a child. The narrative text is poetic and full of emotion. The illustrations, which seem to dance and sing, convey the story of crossing borders as a child.

This children’s picture book, told alternatively in English and in Spanish, highlights all the emotions immigrants experience throughout their journey: the characters end up feeling mystified, bemused, or even bewildered upon entering the United States.

Using colorful, imaginative illustrations and poetic narrative, “We the Dreamers” connects with its readers in an emotional and compassionate way, and it opens up the floor to holding conversations about immigration with children.


What is the hardest part of writing your books?
Making short for children and choosing words appropriate for the age level.


What songs are most played on your Ipod?

Shakira and Gloria Trevi, and old songs from when I was growing up (which I hated back then but now I love) ;-)


Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

Yes, my sister and my mother are my harsh critics.


What book are you reading now?

Violeta by Isabel Allende.


How did you start your writing career?

I would say that I have always enjoyed writing, But writing as a career… I think it goes back to 2010 when I published my first book, “¿Por qué estoy gorda?”


Tell us about your next release.

Another picture book! I just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help me fund the children’s book about the Mirabal sisters. The book, titled “The Mirabal Sisters, From Caterpillars to Butterflies” is about the lives of three sisters that were assassinated in the Dominican Republic by the dictator who ruled the country back in 1960.
