Gracie was born in Miami and raised in Leisure City, Florida surrounded by her extra large Cuban family, her parents' friends who automatically became her family and a bus driver whom she considers a Grandmother. She currently lives outside of Saint Augustine, Florida with her husband and two sons, a miniature schnauzer (who is her Co-Writer). She remains close to her extra-large Cuban family, extended family and childhood bus driver.
Like the Martini Girls in her book, Gracie has her own band of misfits she relies on to share her ups and downs. The Mama Llamas are more than best friends. They are the Sugar Rim to her Lemon Drops.

Gracie found her Happily Ever After one evening while joining Facebook for the first time. After suffering the disappointments of failed relationships and really, really, crappy dates (like really bad dates) she decided to throw in the towel and pick up a hobby. Like knitting. Well not exactly. Although she considered it. Instead, she joined Facebook like much of the world. Little did she know her first online friend would be her husband two years later.
Gracie has two wild boys who she adores more than life itself. She loves to take them on adventures and show them the beauty of nature.
Max joined Gracie later in the editing phase of Loving Whiskey - Martini Girl Bar Series . He is a supportive partner but is not happy with cats being in the book. He prefers if there were more dogs going forward. Something for Gracie to think about.
