Martha Perez


Tell us something about the woman, Martha Perez. Who are you?

I am a wife, mother, and a grandmother of two beautiful granddaughters. I’m a woman with simple tastes. I love reading books.  I read three books a week, and it’s because of this that my love for writing stories was born. I like taking long walks in the evening to unwind and sipping on a glass of my favorite wine Moscato. And I enjoy going to mix martial arts events, movies, and I like kickboxing for exercise.

You have published several titles. Which one  is your favorite and why?


I love all my books. However, I have two that are equally my favorites: In The Dark and Broken Pieces.

I was inspired to write In The Dark because I adore writing short stories. I also have a short story about my Son and dedicated this book to his memory. In The Dark offers eight distinctive and fantastic stories.

Broken Pieces is my first book, and the story is close to my heart because it’s about a girl whose life is full of misery and pain caused by a dysfunctional family, child abuse, bullying, unfulfilled love, and romance.  

How was In The Dark conceived? What was your inspiration?

When I started to write In The Dark, I was in a dark place in my life. My inspiration was a dream I had about the loss of my son. He was only 37  years old when he passed away. I also wrote the book to help other parents who are grieving the loss of a child. It’s a pain that that never goes away and you learn how to cope with it, day by day.

Is there a book or author that inspired you to be a writer?

I adore reading romance novels. I was that little girl under the sheets reading Charlotte’s Web with a flashlight. So many authors inspired me to be a writer, and it’s hard to pick just one. Here are three that gave me the motivation; Megan Hart, Sylvia Day, Kristin Hannah.

What can readers expect when they read In The Dark?


They can expect an assortment of 8 short stories in various genres; all independent, with a wide range of stories from love, romance, drama, suspense, sex.
