Anita writes books with bilingual characters for bilingual readers. Her goal is to fill the publishing gap that currently exists for the increasingly bilingual population in the United States.
Aside from writing, her passion is transforming bilingual youth from reluctant to willing readers. She does this by teaching language, writing, literature and poetry to DREAMers.
She loves the poetry of Pablo Neruda, teen movies from the 1980s and café con leche.
