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.
