When I am not crunching numbers, or joking with my siblings’, I write a variety of stories. I have worked in the accounting and money management field for the past 10 years. I also dedicate my time to being an ESL instructor for adults, as well as being a part-time librarian. My name is Violeta Cornett I was born and raised in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I currently now reside with my husband and 5 dogs in Colby, Kansas. Growing up in a Latino household has been a great influence in my writing. In my household Spanish sayings were big, and so were many stories about our culture. Due to some of these influences I chose this book “My Aunt Flor,” to be my first picture book to represent me and my family.
