Author has written 30 stories for Ben 10, and Hunger Games.
Age: Old enough to know better, yet not too old to understand. (For anyone who doesn't understand this- I'm well, past a teenager.)
Cultural Background: I'm a Latina. I was born in Cuba and came to this country when I was six. I am an American Citizen.
Languages Spoken: English and Spanish, fluently. (Although, I only read fan-fiction in English.)
Ethnicity: My mother is white. My father was mulatto mixed with Chinese. (I'm, pretty, unique-looking)
Favorite Shows: None at the moment. I can only like one show at a time, because I'm crippled with unbelievable fickleness. Most recently, Ben 10 (the three series before Omniverse- this abomination killed the franchise for me.) I was for many years and still consider myself, a pretty hard-core, Trekker- specifically: TNG and Deep Space Nine.
Favorite Movies: Beauty and the Beast, The Matrix, X-Men, Wolverine, Wanted, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Independence Day, All the Star Trek movies and their new JJ Abrams incarnations, Lion King, The 'Dark Knight' Trilogy
Favorite Songs: Too many- 'From this moment' by Shania Twain was my wedding song and Mariah Carey's 'From now until Forever' was the first song my husband ever dedicated to me when we were kids; but there are many, many more... in both English and Spanish.
Favorite Books: The Bible, by far. 'A Wrinkle in Time' trilogy by Madeleine L'Engle. The Hunger Games Trilogy, The Darkest Minds Trilogy
Favorite Genre: Science Fiction and Fantasy (Reality bites!)
Favorite Musical Genre: Don't have one. I'll listen to anything without profanity, if the lyrics were written by someone with half a brain.
Favorite Pass Time: Reading, Writing, Cooking, Skating, Bike-Riding, Arguing (Debating, to be politically correct), Watching Football or Basketball or playing, either.
Self Description: I'm odd. I like that I'm odd. I'm opinionated. I'm an adult who would rather watch cartoons, than what is considered age-appropriate for her, because I find almost all of it disturbing, one way or another. I bore easily. I barely watch television. I love kids. I love helping and guiding young people. I find anyone who hurts a child in any way, disgusting. I tend to understand children, far better than I understand adults; yet I have chosen not to have any of my own. I'm very slow to anger or even get insulted. I don't understand people who are not like me in that regard. I understand that, literally, 98% of the world is not like me -which stinks at times. I'm very loyal. I'm very passionate.
The white man said, "Colored people are not allowed here." The black man turned around and stood up. He then said: "Listen sir...when I was born I was BLACK, When I grew up I was BLACK, When I'm sick I'm BLACK, When I go in the sun I'm BLACK, When I'm cold I'm BLACK, When I die I'll be BLACK. But you sir, When you're born your PINK, When you grow up you're WHITE, When you're sick, you're GREEN, When you go in the sun you turn RED, When you're cold you turn BLUE, And when you die you turn PURPLE. And you have the nerve to call me colored?" The black man then sat back down and the white man walked away...
