Aries Negron will become one of the biggest drug-traffickers to step foot wherever she chooses to stay or make her move. Playing this lifestyle like a game of chess, Aries will leave a profound mark on these streets and even doing it better than the men who will eventually call themselves Hustler’s.

But in order to understand one’s caliber, you have to go back to the past and their upbringing to comprehend one’s action’s.

We start with her parents who fought through the slums of Santurce, Puerto Rico and follow them on their journey to New York City where they will settle in the hard streets of the East Tremont section of The Bronx.

Jose and Monica were faced with many tough obstacles but manage to protect each other along the way. See how their story unfolds in the first book series entitled Aries…With Nothing to Lose and a World to See.

Excerpt:

Prelude

 

 

So I guess you decided to read this book about my life…

Yo I don’t even know why I signed up for this shit in the first place.

Only because someone felt it would be a good idea to let the

world get a glimpse of my life.

Talking about this shit being therapeutic and all.

Yeah Aight….Fuck Outta Here.

Who am I? What ya care about a chick from The Bronx?

What ya wanna know about Aries Negron..huh?

Nothing!! Absolutely Nothing!!

Do me a favor….Don’t judge me or my family because we had

nothing to lose and a world to see.

Do you know what this shit could do to you!!

Do you know what that All mighty dollar could do to that All mighty soul?

And in the end, you don’t even know who to trust, or who to love.

Time passes you by so quickly that you forget to live

Never taking the time out to enjoy the people around you

because you’re so preoccupied in the chase. A chase that in any second

or New York minute will replace ya ass.

It’s whatever though…I don’t even want to hold you up any further

because I’m not into this writing and expressing shit….Good looking out tho

You be safe out there

Get to know Lee-C Ramires:

  • Tell us a little about yourself and where you got the name Lee-C Ramires?

Yes, I was born in Washington Heights in New York City but I was predominately raised in The Bronx. I’m of Puerto Rican and Dominican decent.

As far as my name, Liz is my middle name and Lee-C is how you would pronounce it in Spanish. I wanted to write it in such a way that everyone would be able to pronounce it correctly. It’s a childhood name and I felt it’s something I can share personally with my readers.

  • Since this is your first book, give us some insight on what to expect?

 

Okay, so this is part one of my book series entitled Aries….With Nothing to Lose and a World to See.    My main character is Aries and I felt in order to understand her, I had to take my readers back to her parents and depict how they made their way from Puerto Rico to the United States.

You will expect to read about the everyday struggle, survival, and the choices they had to make when their backs were up against the wall. The decisions that Jose and Monica made before Aries was born will eventually affect her as she gets older. It’s a journey of her life and it’s definitely a ride that’s suspenseful with a cliffhanger that will leave you wanting more.

  • Is this book a Semi-Autobiographical and are the characters based on people in your life?

No, I wouldn’t say it’s semi-autobiographical because I do consider myself a creative writer in the urban fiction genre. My vision was to write a story that is relatable to my culture and my era. I would say that the people in my life may have a better understanding where I created certain characters.

  • What are your ambitions for your writing career?

I want my work to reach many book lovers and even people who are not fond of reading. It brings me joy when I get feedback from readers and they tell me that they lose interest in reading but when they read my book they couldn’t put it down. That means a lot to me because it validates that I did my job. Writing is a form of Art and Art can be translated in so many ways. My ambition is to have Aries on as many platforms creatively and breaking barriers.

  • What lasting impression or words do you want others to have when they think of you?

To say that I’m a strong woman and I used every talent that God has given me to the best of my ability.

  • What’s next for Lee-C Ramires?

Currently I’m in the process of writing part two of my book. I’m also setting up dates to participate in Book Expos and Fairs in various cities. I will be posting those dates on my website and through social media.
