Multi-published Author Caridad Pineiro

As promised, today (tonight) I'd like to introduce mulit-published, award winning author, Caridad Pineiro who happens to be a wonderful friend as well.

I met Caridad over ten years ago when we both began our publishing careers writing Latino romances for Kensington's Encanto line. Through the ups and downs of the publishing business we've shared emails and telephone calls about everything it seems. I've gotten to know not only what a talented writer Caridad is, but what a funny, kind, generous person, and what a truly good heart she has. I'm very proud to share a bit about Caridad and to interview her on January 12th.

Caridad was born in Havana, Cuba and grew up in the New York Metropolitan area. She attended Villanova University on a Presidential Scholarship and graduated magna cum laude. She 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.

In 1999, she published her first Encanto novel and has followed that first book up with seventeen more. In December 2006, Caridad helped Silhouette launch its successful Nocturne paranormal line with DEATH CALLS, one of the novels in the award-winning THE CALLING Vampire series.

Though her dark, paranormal side is exciting to read, she has proven that she is truly multi-talented with her CHICAS novels, including her seventeenth release, SOUTH BEACH CHICAS CATCH THEIR MAN from Simon & Schuster’s Downtown Press.

Her most current novel, which we will talk about next Tuesday is SINS OF THE FLESH, the first in a series of paranormal romantic suspense novels with Grand Central Publishing.

Somehow, while being a full time attorney and a full time author, Caridad finds time to be an exceptional mother and wife and recently launched a writing group that will be having a conference in 2010.

See why I'm impressed?
