Reginia has a vast business background and an ability to write from the heart about the trials and tribulations of family dynamics, love, joy, friendships and heartbreaks.

Reginia was born and raised in Reno, Nevada and her greatest influence was her loving and devoted mother.  In 1988, Reginia's mother became ill and needed around-the-clock care.  Reginia's mother died shortly thereafter and Reginia moved to Fresno County.  Reginia's inspiration for the book came from the loss of her mother.  Reginia was not able to truly mourn the loss of her mother until ten years later.

The author felt a tremendous loss of family and wrote Introspection the first book in a series of Introspection novels over a long period of examining the importance of a loving family.  The book, Introspection, is based on the author's own desire to create what she lost after her mother's death in 1989.  Introspection explores the feeling of having a close-knit loving family.   "This book really highlights my experience on the loss of my mother who was the Matriarch of my extended family.  I did not truly mourn the loss of my mother until ten years after her death.  I began to write Introspection as a way of creating a family that I longed for and so desperately desired," stated Reginia. 

Introspection's main character, Gina, is an exciting, intriguing, dependable yet complicated character in a complex family dynamic.  The reader will see themselves in the main character's life challenges of dealing with the aspects of everyday life as opposed to what one truly feels inside but is fearful to display to the world.

Reginia is the honored recipient of the 24 Women of Influence Award.  The Award, granted by KSEE-TV24, NBC Fresno-Visalia and Kaiser Permanente Health System, honors and recognizes women who have demonstrated dedication to the betterment of their family, company and community. 

In order to receive the 24 Women of Influence Award, one must possess the gifts of giving, encouragement, compassion, leadership and charity.  In response to the honor of being an Award Recipient, Reginia stated, "These gifts are given by God.  It is a great feeling to be honored with the 24 Women of Influence for my commitment to family, work and community."  Reginia went on to thank, among others, her mother from whom she inherited a special gift.  "The gift of giving, a gift not given to all, which I learned watching her empty our freezer to help family and friends," stated Reginia. 

One of Reginia's most notable accomplishments is her work with children as owner of foster care agencies located in Fresno County. 

Also, Reginia created and published motivational and educational magazines for students in the Fresno County school system. 

Reginia resides in Fresno County, California where she thrives as a wife, mother, grandmother and local business owner.  Reginia is a major force in Fresno's thriving business community, in part, for her incredible work as owner of foster care agencies. 

Reginia will read an excerpt from her book Introspection, answer questions and will be signing books at:
