"I've had the privilege of working with many book editors in major publishing houses like Simon & Schuster and HarperCollins as well as smaller presses such as Curbstone, Lee & Low, and Seven Stories. These books have been in multiple genres: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and children's literature. My work has appeared in newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, U.S. News & World Report, Philadelphia Enquirer Magazine, Christian Science Monitor, the Guardian, L.A. Weekly, The Nation, Grand Street, Fox News Latino, and the Huffington Post. For the past 35 years I've also written for weekly newspapers, a daily newspaper, news radio, and the Internet. Yet nowhere did I find a more thoughtful, clear and patient editor than Sulay Hernandez, who edited my last Touchstone Books/Simon & Schuster memoir, released in 2011. I do require patience, unfortunately--the nature of personality and temperament. But Ms. Hernandez worked with me with dignity and skill and graciousness, guiding the process without overwhelming it. She let me own my work, my revisions, the final product. And yet her insights and wisdom were key to ensuring the complicated aspects of the memoir could be salient and succinct enough to maintain a reader's interest to the end. That memoir--"It Calls You Back: An Odyssey Through Love, Addiction, Revolutions, and Healing"--became a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award in 2012. I'm grateful for Sulay Hernandez's sage hand and eye, yet she still maintains the youth and vigor necessary as a dynamic expert in publishing during these shifting times."
