Shoe Shine For a Dime, is the novel of my mom's parents, a tale of migration, hardship, war, fortitude, and victory. Inspired by Hernan and Pastora Delgado.
I recounted anecdotes about my grandparents to my children and they urged me to write them for their kids. I plan to publish Shoe Shine for a Dime by December 2019. Have done and continue to do a lot of research to bring to light from various sources including actual incidents and books composed by my Tia Mina Nelson. I apologize to the people of Matagalpa, Nicaragua, that it's not in Spanish but intent to translate it.
It also covers my mother and dad, Hector Luis Masis and his father, General Jose Tomas Masis, a leading general in the liberation of Central America from Spain.
