Stacy Goodman-Conde by Jerry Hinkle.
As I finish it, the only thing I felt like doing was to cry out loud and free my own demons within me. I am sure a lot of you have some, is part of the DNA of human being.

A journey where the writer takes you in a deep analysis into one’s self at the same time that she is telling her story and at the same time little by little you recognize and understand what she is doing with you, the reader; finding yourself doing the same.
This was my case, maybe my dreamer inner and creative mind plays a roll here, but I don’t think this is the case here.
As a woman and as a girl, who we all are; it was an easy reading as this story was presented as a fairy tale kind, but brilliantly done with an adult injection.
Stacy Conde, the author, said: “The first chapter became somewhat of an obsession”. This tells us, that she, herself went through such a deep analysis before letting it go and “to be”.
Stacy was born in Miami, Florida, where this story takes place as well. A childhood filled with coral castles, mermaids, pools, art deco living, and a citrus smell from oranges. After deeply affected by the experiences and stories of the Cuban people and how they risked their lives for freedom. A subject that lately seems to be everywhere in the world with us humans.
Growing up with lovely grandparents, who taught her deep values for one another, today she is happily married to a brilliant Cuban Artist Andres Conde and her biggest treasure is her three children.

She is the woman behind the artist, she is the mother behind her children; but above all she is the woman behind herself and she has brought you “The Red Speck.”
As a woman love to meet women like Stacy and in everyday of my life, I go by encounter so many characters and great people that I wish I can keep them all close to me to share and enjoy them every moment possible.
