I have been wanting to brag on my niece for a long time. Her talent and passion for writing began to emerge at quite an early age. She is a keen observer of the most minute of details and her ability to translate them into words...well, yes, she is an artist. I have some of her early poems and have them stashed away for safe keeping. They are treasures, as is she. I proudly introduce to you Jocelyn Mendez, Writer and Poet.
