Featured Author, Olivia Castillo, Song of the Boricua

Olivia Castillo is a New York native. After going to the prestigious Fiorello H. Laguardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, she went on to study graphic design at Otis Parson's College in Los Angeles. Along with being an entrepreneur, she is the mother of three children, and grandmother of two. When not writing or spending time with her family, she travels the world and paints. Song of the Boricua is her first novel.   

Puerto Rico, an island of contradiction, serves as an enchanting backdrop following three generations of women. 

Elena: resilient and ambitious, but trapped by duty to her children. 

Maria: passionate and headstrong, but married to a man she does not love. 

Josephina: optimistic and romantic, but in love with an alcoholic. 

Isabella: clairvoyant and spiritual, but denies her heritage and roots.

Like the land, these women are held hostage, unfulfilled and unable to find their happiness. Each generation, like the land, is cursed. Can they defy the powerful bond of the curse and free themselves to find love everlasting?
