Synopsis of the New Book
Cuerpo de paz: Repercusiones de la batalla (Peace Body: The Aftermath of the Battle) recounts the transformation of the author, who after surviving cancer and a bone marrow transplant, finds that her problems are not over. She soon realizes that being sick gave her the opportunity to experience her creative potential, but she is letting her old fears lead her back into a life she can no longer accept. Through journal entries, essays, lists, letters and other forms of autobiographical writing in her blog Hoy, artista, she begins to create and experience a new life full of art, magic, love and, above all, peace to allow herself to be who she always wanted to be.
