About the author (1991)

Yolanda Ortal-Miranda, Profesora Emerita de The College of Saint Rose, en Albany, NY, nacio en Encrucijada, Las Villas, Cuba. Estudio Filosofia y Letras en la Universidad de La Habana y continuo sus estudios especializandose en Literatura Espanola e Hispanoamericana, en The State University of New York, en Albany (SUNYA). Fundo y dirigio Cafe Teatro en Saint Rose, donde se presentaron clasicas obras del teatro espanol y dos de sus proprias obras: "UN PUNTO QUE SE PIERDE EN LA DISTANCIA" (finalista del premio Letras de Oro de la Universidad de Miami) y la adaptacion a la escena de su "BALADA SONAMBULA, Memorias de la Revolucion," que expone, en episodios basados en la realidad, la tragedia de Cuba y de personajes reales de ese momento: sus heroes y sus victimas. En sus obras, Yolanda Ortal-Miranda crea personajes reales y situaciones veridicas. Muestra su creatividad y la calidad literaria de sus obras, en un bello y terso estilo narrativo no carente de tintes poeticos. Sus descripciones mueven el ritmo de la accion fluida y dinamicamente, aprisionando en sus redes al cautivado lector y envolviendolo en el suspenso de la trama, que evoluciona constantemente. Yolanda Ortal-Miranda, Professor Emeritus of the The College of Saint Rose, in Albany, NY, was born in Encrucijada, Cuba. She studied Philosophy and Letters at the University of Havana and continued her studies, specializing in Spanish and Latin American Literature, at the State University of New York at Albany (SUNYA). She founded and directed Cafe Teatro at Saint Rose, where she presented classic Spanish plays and two of her own works: "A SPECK LOST IN THE DISTANCE" (finalist in the University of Miami's "Letra de Oro" contest), and an adaptation of her screenplay, "THE SLEEPWALKERS' BALLAD, Memories of the Cuban Revolution," which vividly exposes the tragedy of the Cuban people under the tyranny of the Castro brothers. Yolanda Ortal-Mirandas creativity and literary skills are clearly evident in the realistic characters and situations that inhabit her works. Her narrative style, while simple and forthright, is often tinted with poetic images that add layers of richness and depth to the story, and to the reader's experience.
