Events in Mexico.

A Single Gringa in Mexico & Mexico a Sunny Place For Shady Men.

I have combined the two books and the new title is, "When Given an Avocado Make Guacamole."The book is available as a Kindle & a paperback. You can order the Kindle version via this link to read on your Kindle, laptop or Iphone.

You can order for  your laptop or PC download this free

There is so much bad press coming from the US about Mexico. That I thought it would be a good idea to use my blog as an ongoing post of events that are happening in Mexico. There are now 45,185 people in 142 countries following me  & 52 are countries I have been to.  

I also have a twitter & youtube account:

Mexico a Sunny Place for Shady Men . You can read a sample chapter every month on my blog.  I just changed Chapter 7 for 8.
Then if you would like to order a ebook or paperback you can on Amazon as the combined 2 books
.So far 6,109 people have read it.

 There is a sample on Chapter 2 of this blog; of my most read Chapter in  A Single Gringa in Mexico. Which is in the combined book as well.

E.c. Bell from Charleston has painted a portrait for our book cover. You can find him and his paintings on his Facebook page under his name as I wrote it. He ships worldwide.

This is a summary of Tres Vampiras.

On a visit to Mexico a mature American woman, Bekka, meets a mysterious silver-haired Mexican man at a nightclub in Puerto Vallarta. After an intense one-night liaison he vanishes and Bekka vows to find him again. In her search she discovers that he met two other women that night, Rebe and Susana. The three women become very quick friends and decide to track down this mysterious man.  Bekka felt an emotional and spiritual connection to him, he belonged to her, and she wanted to be with him. She couldn't explain why she felt that way, and Rebe and Susana couldn't figure out why they felt so close to Bekka. The three ladies begin to experience strange dreams and feelings toward each other, a drawing of souls toward one another. They hatch a plot to meet him again, unknowingly throwing themselves into a new beautiful but dark world, a world that few know exists. - the complex and inflexible world of the vampire, or vampiro.  Demetrio, as they discovered, was different than other vampires. He could walk in the day, and he could age. He was “A Child of the Light” - a White Vampire whose only weakness was the full moon and only protection was the beautiful pendant he wore.  Bekka had hoped to be with him, but as much as he wanted to explore that possibility, he told her the truth - his heart belonged to another and that other had returned to Mexico. He was anxious to reunite with her and had to leave the three women in San Miguel de Allende under the protection of his faithful friend Sister Helga. The Sister would help the three discover their emerging powers and advise them about many future dangers that converged around one name, the one name that would toss their lives into a deeper dark hole - Rose.

Try Casa Farolito Bed and Breakfast - owned and operated by Americans, staffed by local ladies. This place is an Oceanfront gem, unknown by most locals. If you ever read the reviews of most Rosarito Beach Hotels - they are quite dismal.
