About Hazel Eyes Spanish version "Ojos Avellana"

 Acerca del Libro:
Ojos Avellana lleva al lector por un viaje espiritual de fe. Estas memorias conectan cada capítulo con historias comunes y hechos sobrenaturales vividos por el autor. Los temas incluyen los conflictos de la adolescencia, la vida universitaria, tradiciones, cultura, religión, matrimonio, maternidad, envejecimiento y muerte.  Las ganancias de este libro se usarán para apoyar la Campaña por la Dignidad Humana.

La escritora panameña Rose Marie Tapia comentó sobre este libro en Agosto 30 del 2015 lo siguiente:

Ojos Avellana: Un testimonio hermoso de fe.
“Atrapa al lector desde  las primeras páginas, ese es el verdadero talento del escritor. Leí el libro de corrido, sin interrumpir para nada.
Hay similitudes en la historia con la mía: la muerte de mis padres, que me hicieron conectarme con la autora. Me emocionó las escenas de la despedida de su madre.
En fin es un testimonio de amor, fe y esperanza. Felicitaciones a la autora”.
Saludos desde Panamá
Rose Marie Tapia R. -

Maritza Martinez Mejia’s Acceptance Speech 

I am honored in accepting the 2015 CHRISTIAN POETRY AWARD for my first Bilingual Poetry book “Poems, Thoughts and More: Poemas, Pensamientos y Algo Más.”I have to recognize the excellent work of my editor, Diane DesRochers and my publisher, Walter Bodie who did a great job on putting together old photos from my trip to Greece to design the covers. Poetry is the voice of nature and a written form to celebrate life.

Sincere thanks to VCBA for their time and  dedication to Christian Literature. 
Blessings!
