Living in New York City and being on the go constantly, I'm often very dependent on the wonderful people who work in my building and help me.
I'm super lucky because Julio Velez is literally the best and goes the extra mile in every way to help and is truly a terrific person. As I often say to him, "Julio, what would we ever do without you!"
And--he always has a smile!
Here he is with his wonderful family- Alex (who I am so honored started reading my books when he was 9!! :-), Elizabeth, Lauren and of course the lovely mother and wife, Olga.
I'm honored to know such a wonderful family who moved here years ago from Ecuador!
