About the Book

Peter Pan helps Rita solve the mystery of a stray puzzle piece. Aldo looks at the clouds and decides to quit. A little girl insists on making everything in her coloring book orange. Eve defies darkness turning past dreams into future memories.

12 Random Words / 12 Palabras al Azar is a bilingual collection of interior vignettes told in both English and Spanish. Each story is a tale of yearning, a fragment of discovery, a treasure. 

Set in New York, Lima, Buenos Aires, and other cities, these short stories take unexpected turns along the path of remembrance, disappointment, and hope.
