Leticia Gomez has been working in the publishing industry since 1993. During this span of time, she has authored and published two books, edited numerous fiction and nonfiction manuscripts written in both English and Spanish that have gone on to publication. She is also a highly skilled literary translator.

Her professional writing career began in 1993 when she and a friend launched "El Voceador", a bilingual newspaper that served the Southeastern New Mexico and West Texas Panhandle area.

After a three year stint as the newspaper's associate publisher and editor, she resigned from her duties to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a full-time bilingual novelist. Along the way she has worked as a journalist, entertainment and technical writer, translator, talk show host, and columnist.

Her Latino-themed stories and articles have been published in the Albuquerque Journal, Denver Post, Alive Magazine, Senior Highlights Magazine, New Mexico Magazine, Quick Frozen Foods International Magazine, Estylo Magazine, Que Linda Magazine, Hispanic Monthly, Ageless Times Monthly, and Houston Maturity.

"Sweet Destiny" her debut romance novel was published in March, 2001, by Kensington Publishing Corp. as part of its Encanto Romance imprint. She also co-authored Countries of the World Series: Bolivia which was published in 2004 by Times Limited Publishing in association with Gareth Stephens Publishing. More recently her short story Three Little Words was selected for publication in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Celebrating Brothers and Sisters.

At the present time, she owns and operates Savvy Literary Services, a full-service literary agency that specializes in the Latino book market. The prime directive of her agency is to represent Latino and other minority writers since they are among the most underrepresented in the publishing industry today. Leticia offers professional literary representation in both English and Spanish. At this time she represents about 15 authors.

Leticia Gomez currently resides in The Woodlands, Texas, with her husband who is a Structural Engineer and two children, Zakaria, 9 and Yasmine, 7.
