It’s been a bit frustrating as I had three reviews recently that were NOT put on Amazon which is where many look for reviews even if they don’t buy from them. The reviews ended up in obscure places where they’ll never be seen.
The prequel to this novel “Crimes & Impunity in New Orleans” will be out in December.
Peace & justice for all,
I can only hope he will post this on Amazon, as well as other places! Sherrie
I just finished reading your novel. I really enjoyed it. What a page-turner. I completed it in only 4–really 3+1/2 days. I continually had to discover what happened to the characters next.
Far from being mere mouthpieces, they were each real human beings with all a real human being’s combination of gifts and flaws. These, possessed more gifts, of course!
Rather than the two dimensional story we all too often learn of on TV or in the newspapers, you made the struggle in El Salvador truly come alive–both the land herself and the people living there.
You wrote a very lovely, poignant and memorable tale. Through seeing my gushy, purple words, you can tell I am absolutely sincere in my words of congratulations.
Warmest regards, Michael

Thank you for ordering & reading the book. And thank you for your candor. I have a couple friends that normally speak candidly to me, but they have never discussed the book with me this way.
P.S. Because of all the mess with translation, my New Orleans book is on hold, but I will try to attach the cover so you can see it.

Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” will be out en Español very soon! It is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:
I’m finally back to working on the prequel to my debut novel. “Crimes & Impunity in New Orleans” takes place during the Reagan era (including 1984!). Shelly goes to NOLA to prepare for her trip to El Salvador, but she has no idea that a place in the U.S. can be so completely different from her world in Upstate New York. She encounters sexism, police brutality, and sees the effects of racism first hand. Her Salvadoran friend is visited by the FBI & the Cubans in New Orleans threaten the lives of protesters & even call the homes of organizers. Shelly’s time in New Orleans makes her want to go back to her safe, little life in Hilton, NY.
If you can buy the book ahead of time, it will help me pay for editing, formatting & uploading. As you can see above, the cover is already made.
