Welcome to my New Site

Hello everyone, and welcome to my new website! Here you will find everything there is to know about my work and upcoming events. So, please take a look around!

The Coquí & the Iguana, my first picture book, was published by Operation Outreach USA Press in 2011. You can find out more about it under the “Books” tab on this site’s Table of Contents. Thanks to the donations of individual and corporate sponsors, Operation Outreach USA is able to publish and donate educational books with corresponding lesson plans to elementary schools across the country. I am honored to have contributed to their endeavors through my writing. To learn more about OOUSA, you can visit their website at www.oousa.org.

The footprints and detective symbols on my homepage are a sneak peek at my next book. My first chapter book is being published by Piñata Books and is set to reach bookstore shelves by the end of this year. It is a bilingual book about a smart, witty, and extra awesome detective who will stop at nothing to crack her cases. I can’t wait for young readers to use their problem solving skills and join this detective on her quests for justice!

I am currently hard at work writing my next manuscript. With the help of my laptop, late night coffee, and brainstorming sessions with the youngsters in my family, a story filled with mischief, laughter, and shenanigans is being created. Although I type the text in my books, I like to think my characters write the stories. In this way, I feel writing is very much like acting. I love getting to know my characters, filling their shoes, and seeing where their personalities lead the stories. Let’s see where my newest little rascal takes me!

I look forward to communicating with my readers and website visitors through my blog. Leave comments, ask questions, or drop an email in the “Contact Me” section of the site. I will try to update my blog often, but please bear with me! I am new to blogging and sometimes find myself at a loss for words. A wordless writer… there’s an oxymoron for you!

Until my next post: read up and write down!
Alidis
