Latina Teen Fiction Writer

Award-winning writer Caridad Ferrer's book It's Not About the Accent is set to be released on August 21st. Ferrer's publisher Pocket books is likening the book to Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez's book The Dirty Girls Social Club. But the fact of the matter is, the talented Chica is in class by herself. The Jacksonville, FL-residing Ferrer is known for her humor and wit---much centered on her heritage as a Manhattan-born, first generation Cuban-American. Her Adios to My Old Life book (also published by Pocket Books) nagged an award at the 2007 edition of Romance Writers of America's RITA award.
