🌟Delia's Newsletter: Interview with Latinx Author: Yamile Saied Méndez

Pura Belpre winner of FURIA and one of the editors of the latest book OUR SHADOWS HAVE CLAWS

¡Hola! Welcome to my first newsletter. Overtime I will share book recs, writing tips, podcasts with author guests, interviews, query trenches journey, and more! I promise not to spam you—just leave you with some fun content :) Let’s get this started 🎉

I had the pleasure to chat with Yamile Saied Méndez, an award winning author and wonderful person as a whole. Some of the things we discussed include:

  • Will there be a Spanish translation of FURIA?

  • Will there be a FURIA movie?

  • Where are Camila & Diego (characters from FURIA) now?

  • What were some scenes from FURIA that got cut?

  • Inspiration behind “La Madrina” from OUR SHADOWS HAVE CLAWS

  • What was it like planning a quinceañera for your daughter + releasing Twice a Quinceañera around the same time?

  • Did you have a quinceañera?

  • How do you celebrate your big and small wins?

  • Bad Bunny trivia! I asked Yamile to fill in the song lyrics, reveal her favorite songs, and let us know if she’s going to the world’s hottest tour!

Find out the answers to all of these questions by listening to the podcast (press play above) or watching the in-person interview on Youtube HERE.

*Youtube video has captions for the Spanish sections.
