SUMMER IN QUEEN CITY whisks the reader from blustery blue Chicago to the pines and progressive city of Seattle. This contemporary chronicle interweaves the cultures of the mainstream with Latino traditions of our protagonist who comes to settle in Washington State. The sanctified strength that lies deep within all of us is reflected with every trial and triumph Amada faces.
I am a happy human who splits her time between Washington state and the Florida peninsula. My boyfriend and I have 1 fur baby. Bailey Butterscotch Benavides is a golden retriever. He carries my last name because all treasures passed down in our family are matrilineal. Well, almost all.
