This past month has heralded several professional milestones: The Laptev Virus received its 100th review on Amazon and has passed the 7,000 mark on copies sold! I also had a producer query me about the film rights for Laptev. And Sinco, my second novel, is a finalist for the International Latino Book Awards! Yay!

Guess what? The Laptev Virus is included on this list!!
The Double by Alison Brodie Romance/Women’s Fiction $3.99 on Kindle This is one of those books that falls squarely into the category of “delicious fun.” It’s got some mystery, a few cliffhangers, and a strong dose of romance. The plot revolves around the storylines of two different heroines—an A-list rock star celebrity singer and an average everyday woman—but both are whip-smart, fiery, compassionate, and completely relatable. The romance hits t...

On a morning in March 2014, the South China Morning Post reported the discovery of a Megavirus, recovered from the ancient depths of the Siberian ice. Megavirus is one of a few recently discovered giant viruses, encoding more proteins and exhibiting larger diameters than any virus discovered to date. Fortunately, this particular pathogen only infects amoeba, not humans. However, the scientists who cultured the virus in the lab are worried that th...

What a nice review by Author and Screenwriter, Steven Ramirez!
Okay, let’s get to the point. I thought “The Laptev Virus” is a great read. For me, this is a solid sci-fi story rooted in actual science.

I almost missed the e-mail--"Congratulations! You are the winner..." read the subject line.I'm the winner of a cruise which will be happily awarded after I sit through a measly 4 hours of propaganda on purchasing a time-share condo. I'm the winner of a Nigerian bank account worth $10 million, since they can't find the owner.These are the thoughts that slipped quickly through my mind before I did a double-take. Wait a minute! I entered the Nationa...

Introduction

It's been a long time coming, this dream of mine, but I am finally seeing it through: I am a novelist. The first two novels, Bueno and Sinco, have been published, and the third will be out in September, 2014. 

What are they about? I thought you'd never ask! They're about this guy, an American man from Houston, whose brother died in Spain, and in dealing with his grief, he decides to move there. He gets a job at an American School (a private school where the lessons are taught in English) and, poor guy, he runs into A LOT of trouble with the teachers he is supposed to be managing. So, in the series we follow his new life, and get to know the other teachers at the school. We see what it's like to live in Spain, and tag along when he meets Carmen who becomes his girlfriend...it's a really nice story, one in which you really get to know and love the characters. Fans are saying great things about the books. Have a look: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I3PRPA2

 

Bragging rights
Bueno, book 1, and Sinco, book 2, of the Cantabria American School series. On a side note, I also wrote Grammy and the Wily Raccoon, perfect for 3 year olds.
