I get to do my second favorite thing today as a Hispanic books author – a school visit!

My favorite thing is writing the YA books. I’m well into Diego’s third fantasy dragons book right now, and it’s getting to the point of the next big battle. Diego and Magnifico will lead the Sol Dragones against the Spanish conquistadors in the year 1519 in a fight to save Diego’s people in our time – awesome!

I get to tell the students at Rincon all about it, and talk to them about why I decided to write fantasy, show some cool powerpoints, and maybe sign and sell some of the best new fantasy novels around.

I get pumped up when I talk to students. They make me feel like I’m someone I hope to be someday – a very successful author. The next Jeff Kinney, maybe?
