Caridad Pineiro - Day 1

Please welcome author, Caridad Pineiro to her first day on the island! New York Times and USA Today bestseller Caridad Pineiro wrote her first novel in the fifth grade when her teacher assigned a project – to write a book for a class lending library. Bitten by the writing bug, Caridad continued with her passion for the written word through high school, college and law school. Shortly after the birth of her daughter, Caridad’s passion for writing led to a determination to become published and share the stories she loved with others. In 1999, Caridad’s first novel was released and a decade later, Caridad is the author of over twenty novels and novellas. Caridad hopes to continue to share her stories with readers all over the world for years to come. When not writing, Caridad is an attorney, wife and mother to an aspiring writer and fashionista.

Good Morning Caridad!

Welcome to the island! I read "Sins Of The Flesh", a short time ago and enjoyed it thoroughly. For me it was a real page turner.

I'm looking forward to reading "Stone Cold Sins".

Welcome again and enjoy!

Great interview. I love that you brought your hubby with you, that's wonderful.
