Najera

My cousin graduates today and is officially a Doctor. Doctor Najera. I am so proud of her accomplishments. It was a long road but one well worth the journey!

For those of you that have read Mishap & Mayhem you may have wondered about the last name of Grasiella and Tatiana. Najera. It's an old family name from the northern part of Spain. And yes Grasiella and Tatiana are Latina. I decided a long time ago that my stories would always include Latinos and Latinas, this was important to me because I have not found a lot of YA novels that have a main character with Latin origins.

I have so many ideas and stories that I think I can bring to life, and share a bit about a culture that has gone unnoticed.
