I’m dating myself, but in highschool I was a HUGE fan of Leo DiCaprio as he played Romeo in what was then, the newly released Romeo and Juliet movie. In graphic design school, I took a stage design class and I used the party scene in that movie where Juliet and Romeo first see each other as the set I had to mimic in my class project. I really regret not going back to school that summer to grab that project as I was quite proud of how it turned out.
Today, Ramón and Julieta publishes and with it’s theme of the infamous Shakespeare play as a theme of the story’s premise, I can’t wait to read this one.

As San Diego's outraged community protests against the Taco King take-over and the divide between their families grows, Ramón and Julieta struggle to balance the rising tensions. But Ramón knows that true love is priceless and despite all of his successes, this is the one battle he refuses to lose.
