Raquel Valldeperas is a mother and a wife, which consequently means she is a chef, a chauffeur, a teacher, a lifeguard, a maid, a coach, and sometimes a tyrant, among many other things. In the dark of night, under the cover of clouds, she becomes a writer, a reader and a line dancer. Unless Game of Thrones or The Vampire Diaries are on. Then she becomes hypnotized. She would create a list of accomplishments to make her sound more prestigious, but alas, she is merely a part-time student and a full time homemaker where accomplishments include making it through the day with both her husband, Todd, and son, Aubrey, still alive.

Toxic is her first novel, but certainly not her last. Nathan's story, Tailspin, will be released August 2013. Look fo

I think it's safe to say that this page hasn't gotten any lovin' in a while. I'll take the blame- and no excuses this time. I've just been neglecting it the same way I've been neglecting the ideas in my head.

It's been more than two months since I've written anything more than a blog post. I've been stuck in this cloud of writer's block and self-doubt.
Can I do this? 
Am I good enough?

Raquel Valldeperas is on page 29 of 305 of The Hunter's Moon: So far it's really young.. the main characters are 16 but act more like preteens. Hopefully it gets better as the characters grow with their surroundings.

Miriam Epstein Waiting tables has its moments, that is for sure. BTW, we are neighbors! I'm right down the road from you in Aventura. We should grab some coffee.

Miriam Epstein I clicked on the Amazon link for Toxic to buy it for my Kindle, only to discover I already did.

Taryn at My Secret Romance HA! That's true AND you do get a lot of land for your money out there. I think after a while you don't even notice the yellow. Lol I keep looking at houses over there, so... :)


Taryn at My Secret Romance That's Jupiter Farms! I was just looking at a house in there myself! I like it out there but the issue I have with it is that they have well water, not city. It's kind of off the beaten path but nice too!


Taryn at My Secret Romance I love Jupiter! I originally grew up in Palm Beach Gardens, but Jupiter is home to me now. It's busy here too, but nothing like WPB. Any specific places in Jupiter you looked at?


Taryn at My Secret Romance Hey Raquel! Where in WPB are you?

When you respond, comment on my wall or else I won't get your comment. :)
