Petite, powerful, and relentless are just a few words to describe Peggy Robles Alvarado. Her award winning and emotionally evocative first book, Conversations With My Skin published in 2011, details Peggy’s poignant and powerful transformation from a pregnant fifteen-year-old girl scarred by relationship abuse and her evolution into a resilient woman.
Her latest book, Homenaje a las guerreras / Homage To The Warrior Women, is a collection of poetry and prose dedicated to the inherited strength of women as expressed in their labor, love, sensuality, spirituality and movement. This book honors the vitality, power and prowess of everyday women and how their rituals, wit, and perceived imperfections can create an evocative legacy.

What readers have said:
“One thing is for sure, after reading Peggy Robles-Alvarado’s work, I get the sense that there is no one who can ever make her feel hopeless, inferior, or insecure ever again. She may be petite in stature, but never small in character. And her ability to reflect, forgive, and give thanks, is her machete of choice…”
“Strong like fire but elegant as a breeze on a New York summer day. Her words erupt from her soul, explode through the air, and trickle down to the ears of anyone who listens; changing their hearts forever….”
