Elaine’s web pages:

After reading Don Quixote Elaine decided to get her own books published.
She had two books sitting in her studio for over 30 years and was moved by
the celebration of story telling that Cervantes is so famous for.

“ManTime (The Spiral of Time)” and “Man Time II (Seconds, Minutes, Hours, Days, Months, Years)”
were created as a viewpoint about man’s interaction with time.
They are made with the language of the heart...a universal one.

Enrique Flores, “ 90 Miles to Habana “ ( Book Reading & Presentation. )

Based on Flores-Galbis's experiences, this novel is deeply affecting. In 1961, Julian and his two brothers leave Cuba with 14,000 other children, in what is known as "Operation Pedro Pan." History comes alive through the author's dazzling use of visual imagery and humor, which ranges from light to dark.
