Hey, New York Times, Look Over Here!

Yesterday, the New York Times published an article about how Latino kids are still having trouble finding fiction with Latino characters in them–especially MAIN characters. Latino kids have a hard time especially finding fun, commercial-type adventurous fiction with characters who remind them of themselves. You can read that here: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/05/education/young-latino-students-dont-see-themselves-in-books.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Well, I have something for the Latina tween in this dilemma. And today on NewLatina.net, you can read an exclusive interview with me where I talk all about my new series: The Arts-Angels, and about my Nuyorican background. Here THAT link:

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did answering the questions!  And then go visit Amazon or Barnes and Noble and pick a copy for yourself or for the young Latina (or non-Latina) in your life who loves music and the arts!  Links below:
