Laila Raimes grew up in the Bronx and moved to Rochester NY for her last year of high school and... It sucked!! I now live with my nearly 13 year old son in the same state.....
In all truth what you need to know about me is I'm sarcastic funny, short not even 5'3, I'm Puerto Rican which means I will cut you, or at the very least give you a smack down if you piss me off, if not a verbal assault is possible. I love my family above all else but place my child above any others.
As far as my writing goes, each book has truth to it. There is always a situation that I have experienced or someone close to me has lived through that is real. It's always REAL... Unfortunately it is usually what most would consider the worst part of the book and it's either my life, my family's life, or a very close friends experience. And no I will not tell you whose....
Just know that I put my entire heart into what I write even when it's painful or embarrassingly funny.
