Preview: The Skinny Years
New coming-of-age novel available in June  My fourth novel, The Skinny Years , is quite different from the Class H Trilogy. It's more personal and closer to home. I hope this coming-of-age story set in the stormy sixties reminds readers of every generation ...

I Tend a White Rose
Cultivo Una Rosa Blanca (I Tend a White Rose) is perhaps the best-known work of Cuba’s most beloved patriot and poet, Jose Marti. In Spanish, the poem’s simple words are powerful and inspiring. Yet I’ve never been nearly as moved by its many English transla...

When the book is better than the movie
When the subject of books-into-movies comes up, almost everyone
I know favors the book over the film. The most often cited reason? The book
offers more depth of character and plot. That’s not surprising when you do the math. Most books run 250
to 350 pages....

Here's a head scratcher: In Cuba, subtitled South Korean soap operas are more popular than Mexican telenovelas broadcast in Spanish. (One of my cousins back on the island is hooked.) A quirky group, we Cubans. Read the full story.

Just because you can write a book doesn’t mean you can sign one
As an author of 16 titles, you'd think author Ralph Keyes faces book signings with little trepidation. After reading Ralph's new essay for The American Scholar , I was relieved to find I was not alone in my angst over dedicating books. Enjoy Inscriber's Blo...

Good judgment
An anthropologist once asked a Sioux tribal leader how he got to be chief. “Good judgment,” said the chief. “How does one acquire good judgment?” the anthropologist asked. “Bad judgment,” the chief answered. Raul Ramos y Sanchez

Award-winning author of THE SKINNY YEARS and the Class H Trilogy: AMERICA LIBRE, HOUSE DIVIDED and PANCHO LAND
Introduction

Cuban-born Raul Ramos y Sanchez grew up in Miami’s cultural kaleidoscope before becoming a long-time resident of the U.S. Midwest. After a successful career in advertising that included founding an ad agency with offices in Ohio and California, Ramos turned to more personally significant work. This began with developing a documentary for public television, Two Americas: The Legacy of our Hemisphere and also creating MyIimmigrationStory.com — an online forum for the U.S. immigrant community. Ramos began his first novel of the Class H Trilogy, AMERICA LIBRE, in 2004 with the input of scholars from Latin America, Spain, and the United States.
