--Elizabeth Fischer, mother, writer, teacher, idealist--

An expression of m
y individuality my Converse High Tops are my foundation. I dare to be different. Though, we are all different, some never give free rein to the valor within, to explore that which has made them extraordinary. The last two lines of Digby Wolfe’s poem, Kids who are Different encapsulates it’s heart and the embodiment of my essence, “. . .for when they have grown, as history’s shown, it’s their difference that makes them unique.”

Inspired by my own distinctiveness, driven by the desire to entertain those who--though unlike me--are much like me, I embarked on a writing career. The three Contemporary Romance manuscripts I’ve completed, although written in English are infused with bits of Spanglish, the Spanish slang, Idioms, and phrases which weave the cultural tapestry that is my life. The heroines are Hispanic. The subject matter encouraged not only by my own sub-culture--first generation Cuban American--but that of real working class women, specifically.----
