When writing becomes a Sanctuary

When writing becomes a Sanctuary

Francesca Flores wants her readers to be proud and feel brave after surviving difficult or humbling circumstances. Francesca Flores was born in Pittsburg to a Colombian father and a white American mother. “Growing up, it was often hard to meet other Latinos, since my neighborhood and school didn't have many. But I always tried to connect with people and speak Spanish as much as possible ,” she recalled in a recent interview with AL DÍA. Flores is today a promising linguist and of youth fantasy novels starring Latina teenagers , in a sort of homage to her Latin American roots, even though she was raised mostly by her mother. “I never thought I'd become a published author. I didn't realize it was an actual career I could have, since I knew nothing how publishing worked or how to get involved in it,” she admitted. As she explains in her blog, Flores lived in two worlds growing up . One world was the private school she attended on scholarship. The second one was her local community in Pittsburg, where most of his friends got more wrapped into poverty, gangs, drugs, “and many other problems they shouldn't have to deal with as teenagers.” “ anchored me in both worlds, and was something I could do on the bus between work and school, or at night once I finished homework,” she wrote.
