Story
Tagline
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.
