Presenting Hazel Eyes


About the Book
                                      Author Maritza Martinez Mejia's Memoir

It is a pleasure to present to you my book HazelEyes an Inspirational book for teenagers and adults.

The reason I wrote this book was to take the reader on a journey to view my personal life and to reveal my experience of faith. This memoir connects each chapter with common stories and supernatural events that I experienced from childhood through adulthood.

The topics I included in my memoir go from my doubts as a child and questions as a teenager. I added in my studies, travels, engagement, motherhood, parenting skills. The last chapters consisted of aging, dying, and passing tradition to other generations. I shared some of my traditional celebrations and devotional prayers from the Catholic Church that I learned at a Catholic School or from my mother and grandmother. I brought quotes from other religious point of view from the 19th century poets such as: inspirational fiction from the book of “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran, a Lebanon poet of 1920s. I included some insights from C. S. Lewis most know for the “Chronicles of Narnia” 1960s and Rabindranath Tagore, the first Nobel Prize from Bengali literature in 1913.


The writing process of Hazel Eyes was a healing encounter. I realized how important it is to examine life and wipe away any past incidents or forgive a person you need to apology. I thought I did not have any bad feelings, until I was writing some of the episodes from my teenage years. It took me several drafts and three summers to put together the manuscript of this book, but only three months for the editing and publishing process thanks to the Writer’s group of Morningside Library in Florida who helped me go through the excitement of making this project public in 2010.
The profit from this book is to promote Peace thru prayer activities, advocate action, and public speaking.

Hazel Eyes inspired me to continue to write inspirational messages for all ages. The future of this book is to have a Spanish version to reach the Hispanic community and to gratify my family and friends from Colombia, the land where I was born.

Hazel Eyes Development

My Memoir Development



The reason I wrote this book was to take the reader on a journey to view my personal life and to reveal my experience of faith. The main reason is to give testimony of my faith.

This memoir connects each chapter with common stories and supernatural events that I experienced from childhood through adulthood.

The topics I included go from my doubts and questions as a teenager, my studies, travels, engagement, motherhood, parenting skills, aging, and dying matters.

It took me three years to put together the manuscript of this book, and only three months for the editing and publishing process thanks to the Writer's group of Morningside Library who helped me go through the excitement of making this project public. 

The writing process was a healing encounter. I realized how important it is to examine life and wipe away any past incidents or forgive a person you need to apology. 


I selected two special photographs for the Covers. I took them on 1986 in PeƱaBlanca- Chile.

The future of Hazel Eyes is to have a Spanish version: Ojos Avellana

Hazel Eyes Timeline


Joined Morningside Writers Group - Dec. 2009

Since 2006, I was writing my memoir and taking online classes to improve my work, but I definitely needed a Critique group to revise my work. I joined Morningside Writers Group three years later. This critique group had helped me not only to improve my writings, but also find an editor and information to become a self-publish author.
