The Latina Book Club welcomes Dominican writer and illustrator Genia I. Nunez. For her, it all began with a poster over a decade ago. Today, she enjoys writing poetry, photography, crafts and keeping her inner child alive!
I believe that education is very important for our children. Being bilingual is more relevant than ever before. – Genia I. Nunez
Q: We know you are a Civil Engineer and a college professor. Where did the desire to write children's books come from?
A: I’ve always enjoyed classic fairy tales like the Brothers' Grimm Collection, the Dr. Seuss Series and Clifford the Big Red Dog series.
Q: What are you writing now?
A: I have a couple of books that are part of The Cycle Series coming up, that deal with the months of the year and the seasons. I also have some math and traffic educational books that I’m working on. Look for the Cycle books this Summer.
