Spring, Beauty and Books: Yvette Calleiro

Author Yvette Calleiro

South Florida doesn’t really experience the seasons, so Spring doesn’t show itself as it does in the northern states. Sure, we have some frigid days (by South Floridian standards), but we mostly enjoy pleasant weather with bright blue skies and swaying palm trees. Despite the lack of visual representation, the energy of Spring is ours for the embracing. Spring is about renewal and growth. It encompasses dreaming and setting new goals. During this season, I enjoy spending more time outdoors. Whether it’s bike riding, walking, visiting the beach, or camping, nature rejuvenates my soul. This season also excites me because my son and I plan our summer road trip, a journey that creates long-lasting beautiful memories. Our steps are lighter, our vision is brighter, and our hearts begin soaring in Spring.

step away from life’s hustle and bustle
let go of the need to do – just be
enter lush, magical forests
exhale your envy and angst
inhale earth’s energy
be one with nature
embrace jade’s gift

My novel:

My newest novel is called HYPE. Here is the book blurb:

“Cici’s junior year in high school is going to be the best year ever. Popular co-captain of the varsity cheerleading team, she’s dating the starting quarterback. Even her jealous co-captain’s attempts to steal her boyfriend can’t curb her enthusiasm.
When her mom moves in with her fiancé, a handsome, wealthy man, only one small detail threatens Cici’s perfect life. The school’s social pariah is about to become her stepsister, and Cici wants nothing to do with her.
Everything changes when someone Cici cares about throws her life into a tailspin, and the one person Cici couldn’t stand becomes her only ally.”

Warning: This story contains scenes of sexual assault.

    Happy and inspiring Yvette. Like you said, some places don’t actually feel like a change of season with physical changes, but nonetheless, each season represents another feeling and time for different activities. 🙂

    You have such a beautiful smile, Yvette! I enjoyed reading your thoughts about spring and your poem. And I’m impressed with your list of books. Hype sounds tantalizing. If I ever live somewhere, it has to have a similar climate than southern Florida in the winter and spring. 🙂
