Mariana Ruybalid has published two novels, A Pattern of Silent Tears and Coyote Healer, Coyote Curandero, as well as a book of poems, Daring to Write. Her first novel, A Pattern of Silent Tears, is based on the years Ruybalid spent in Costa Rica working as a psychologist with disabled women and children. She has two bachelors and three master’s degrees. “I've never let cerebral palsy stop me from doing much,” Mariana Ruybalid says. She has lived in Berkeley since 1976. All of her books are owned by the Berkeley Public Library. Be sure to check them out.
A free chapbook is available at Berkeley Public Library branches. Please pick one up!
