I’m thrilled to share the news about my second picture book being published! 🎉🎉
ABUELITA’S GIFT will be published by Knopf in Fall 2024 and will be illustrated by the talented and award winning artist, Ms. Sara Palacios. I can’t wait to see how she brings the book to life!
I’m very thankful to my agent, Natascha Morris at The Tobias Literary Agency, and to my editor Gianna Lakenauth at Knopf for believing in this heartwarming story. ABUELITA’S GIFT is a picture book about a girl who misses her late Abuelita and how she wants to honor her during her first visit in Día de Muertos.
This book is very special to me since it’s about a beloved and traditional celebration in Mexico, so I’m honored to be able to share glimpses about the culture and folklore surrounding this beautiful holiday.
I’ll be sharing more news regarding this book as it moves down the path to publication. I hope you’ll love reading it as much as I loved writing it.
