I'm A Writer!
I was invited to share my testimony of abuse and trauma at the Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) annual tribute, commemorating National Crime Victims' Rights Week, that honors victims, their families, and friends, and celebrates the successes of the victims' rights movement.
At the end of my speech, people came up to me with tears, thanking me because I told them things they didn't know. That they deserved, that they had the right. I was moved and surprised at their reaction. That's when I realized that my story had a message that could help others. The first seed of my book was planted. Now Steven Dunn, author/editor, is helping me with editing my book that will be out soon. I'll keep you posted.

"For the past 10 months or so I've been reading/working with Alicia on her book about her life - childhood and adulthood in Venezuela/Spain/US - and good lord! This woman writes stuff that tears me the hell up. I've been crying, pissed off, in love. And I'm learning a lot of stuff I never knew. I hope this book hits the world and does the same for whoever reads it."
