Join Us for A Conversation With Ana M. Torres

Tommy Hulette feels anything but loved. After his happy childhood is destroyed by his mother's suicide and his father's abandonment, he struggles to shed the family legacies of secrecy and sadness. Tommy's poignant story of loss, survival, and self-acceptance is the subject of A.M. Torres' debut novel, Love Child.

Like her main character, Ana is a native New Yorker; however, they have little else in common. Born to large and close knit family, Ana and her six siblings grew up in the East New York section of Brooklyn. At a young age she began keeping a journal of her innermost feelings, and these entries inspired her to construct another family dynamic, one very different from her own. This became the foundation for the ill-fated Hulettes.

Today Ana lives on Staten Island, where she is currently at work on the sequel to Love Child.
