A writer to watch…

Désirée Zamorano delights in the exploration of contemporary issues of injustice and inequity, via her mystery series featuring private investigator, Inez Leon. Human Cargo was Latinidad's mystery pick of the year in 2011.

Her second novel, Modern Cons, is a story of psychological suspense where she explores the reverberations of being raised by a con artist.

Her next novel is about four women linked by birth, separated by secrets of sex, money and death. Look for The Amado Women in Spring 2014 from Cinco Puntos Press.

A Pushcart prize nominee, and award-winning short story author Des is also proud of having co-authored with her sister two plays commissioned by southern California's Bilingual Foundation for the Arts. "Reina" and "Bell Gardens 90201" received Equity productions and toured for a total of eight years.
