Houston author Gwendolyn Zepeda believes she’s the first Latina blogger ever. In 1997 she started Television without Pity, an ''online journal'' – they weren’t called blogs way back then – and launched what has become a very prolific writing career. She's got a collection of short stories, three novels and three children's books to her credit, with more on the way for the new year. Her latest novel, Better with You Here, is sure to garner lots of attention during An Evening with Gwendolyn Zepeda. The story of a divorced mother fighting to keep custody of her kids, Better with You Here features Zepeda's signature mix of black comedy and poignant tenderness.
