Representing her hometown Canton, Ohio, her loving Dominican family, and her beautiful readers is something Cristina will always carry in her head and heart. "Harmony" is a story close to home about a real-life llama named Harmony from Somerset, Ohio. The real Harmony and his owner, Donna Moore, started the first llama show in Columbus, Ohio (you can say Columbus is special to both the author and the main characters). In this realistic fiction story, Harmony longs to be with his llama family in Peru.

"No matter the age, humans experience moments of missing something from our lives. Whether that be a family member we are longing or an item in our shopping cart we must have, we often cloud the good we've had all along. As a Latina, I grew up craving to be with my family in the Dominican Republic; I had the toughest time accepting my life here. As lives and demographics continue to change in the U.S., I believe my children's book, "Harmony," is a relatable, powerful story of gratitude for everybody in need of hope and encouragement to continue living. I want "Harmony" to continue impacting people for the better and this Author Academy Award is a huge step in making "Harmony" go global. Let's make Harmony happen; thank you!"
