When I was little, I found myself lost in books that stirred my imagination. I vividly remember pretending I was the heroine in many of those books, which usually meant I had some sort of magical ability. I hope you find such magic and imagination in the pages of TORTILLA SUN.
I had so much fun bringing Izzy, Mateo, Nana, Maggie, and Frida to life. Each character had his or her own demands, like Frida insisted that she was a dog even though I wanted her to be a cat. So we compromised and she became a cat who thinks she's a dog.
If you believe all things are possible and that maybe, just maybe, there really is magic in this world, then you'll love TORTILLA SUN.
