Hello! My name is Anel Patricia. I am a Writer & Educator. I used to call my blog Stories & Stuff but after attending Jacqueline Woodson’s talk at the Writer’s Digest Conference in August of 2015 I decided to have a more focused and purposeful blog.
I am The Other– living in-between different languages and cultures. Officially I am Latina– having been born in Corozal, Belize & Merida, Yucatan- I’ll explain later- it’s a long story. I grew up in California and have lived in China and Brazil and YES, I enjoy traveling! I currently live in Maryland and I really like it. There is something about this state that just clicks with me. I am still trying to figure that out!
I am a Mom to a beautiful toddler named Enrique. I am a wife to a kind and supportive husband named Felipe. I am the daughter of a strong woman named Hilma.
I am a writer of stories- all kinds. I love Children’s Stories, Science Fiction, Horror, YA books and really anything that connects to me. I also dabble in poetry when inspiration hits me. And on occasion I write educational stuff to use in a classroom since I am an ESL teacher too.
If you have any questions- just let me know!
