       Additional Information  
     
      Heart of the Jaguar" is a compelling story in which Mexican folklore mixes with the modern day life of a young girl living in the fictional border town of South Bay. The writer takes the mythical figure called La Llorona (the weeping woman), who is feared by children, and gives her a new meaning in the story. The young heroine, Nina, discovers that she has a past that links her to La Llorona, and that strong connection helps her to overcome her battered childhood and the traumas that she underwent while living with her abusive stepfather. "Heart of the Jaguar" is a novel that appeals to both adults and adolescents, male and female alike. Flashbacks into the once supreme ancient Aztec civilization bring back to life that now extinct culture that fiercely ruled above other races at the time. The writer carefully crafts two separate plots that unite at the end of the story, in a battle, at the paradise of lost souls.
