More About the Author

Hola. I'm a writer from Western New York who's still working on the great American novel with regular detours into short fiction, nonfiction, meta-fiction then art and music. I must be stopped but when, how, and by whom? Anyway, here's a sampling of my books...For mystery lovers, check out Rented Rooms and Paloma. For character-driven stories, consider: Thirst, Spots Blind, The Simple Mechanic of Infinite Execution. For writing and publishing series: Composition, On Creative Writing, Publishing Tips. For self-help: 101 Ways to Meditate: Discover Your True Self. For English or Spanish students: Of the Dance/De la Danza. For light humor and erotica, download the freebie...Teddy Bear. Well that about does it for now. Blue skies and starry nights, Linda

3.0 out of 5 stars Spanish short stories 18 Jun 2012
By Scooby
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These stories are written by an American and include swear words and colloquialisms. I read the first story, which I found boring, but the second story was hard for me to understand in Spanish so I gave up. If your level of Spanish is equivalent to A level GCSE then you might enjoy these stories. I will return to tnem when my Spanish is a lot better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 9 Dec 2011
By J Davis - Published on
Six engaging short stories portraying the 'dance' of love and desire between men and women. Sometimes poignant, sometimes steamy. I liked the dual presentation in English and Spanish. What a great tool for learning a second language.

2.0 out of 5 stars Literary bankrupt, hard to follow dual language layout on kindle. 20 Feb 2012
By Roy Klein - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was hard to stick to this book due to the lack of literary worth and problematic dual language layout (at least on the kindle).

Concerning the stories in the book, I feel like I've read my first pulp fiction romance. All stories revolve around relationships between men and women, with gratuitous sexual descriptions included. If they would've been written with a beginner reader in mind, I could overlook the content. But the stories suffer from unnecessarily complex descriptions that can be hard to decipher even in English.

Concerning the dual language-ness, each story changes the way it splits between English and Spanish (starts with sentence in English-sentence in Spanish, ends in long paragraph in English-long paragraph in Spanish). By the time I figured a system to read the Spanish part first and the English part second in one layout, the story ended and I had to deal with a different layout. Flipping pages on the kindle is not the fastest operation, which increased the frustration.

Overall, this is my first dual language book. It beats every Spanish reader I got off the kindle market, but I am certain that there are better finds out there, both in terms of literary worth and dual language layout.
