Laura's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us grow and continue to publish children's literature by Puerto Rican authors and illustrators.

Laura's story

I'm a working mom of three small children who have always been in love with literature. Since I was ten years old I've been an avid devourer of books of all types from historical fiction to poetry and thrillers. As a mom, my greatest joy and pride is teaching my children the magic of reading and the use of their imagination. My favorite part of being an author and publisher is the time I get to spend reading to and with children at schools and events. My work with editorial destellos has opened my eyes to the amazing literary and artistic talent here in Puerto Rico and I want to use this publishing house as a vehicle to share their talent with the world through the creation of amazing, enriching books for children and youth.
