Aloha to Caridad Pineiro and AZTEC GOLD
Three times a charm for Caridad Pineiro - she was my guest for NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH and SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION. Today I recognize her for cosponsoring the SOS Military Mixer at the RT Booklovers' Convention.
Caridad is an American success story - here are excerpts from her bio:
Caridad Piñeiro is a multi-published and award-winning author whose love of the written word developed when her fifth grade teacher assigned a project – to write a book that would be placed in a class lending library. She has been hooked on writing ever since.
Caridad was born in Havana, Cuba, and settled in the New York Metropolitan area. She attended Villanova University on a Presidential Scholarship and graduated magna cum laude. Caridad earned her juris doctor from St. John’s University and became the first female partner of Abelman, Frayne & Schwab, an intellectual property firm in midtown Manhattan.
When not writing, Caridad teaches workshops on various topics related to writing and heads a writing group. Caridad is also an attorney, wife and mother.
Courage Under Fire?
A Few Good Men?
