Martha Rodriguez is the author of the children’s books A Reel Cool Summer and Smell My Feet! 10 Seriously Silly and Sweet Short Stories for Squirts. She is also the owner of Read To Me Publishing, LLC.
She was born in Havana, Cuba and came to the United States with her family at the age of three. She is a wife and the mother to three awesome kids. Like most moms, she has had many years of experience answering the question, “We’re bored, what can we do?” One answer to that question brought about the story behind A Reel Cool Summer.
Smell My Feet! is a collection of short stories, for children ages 7-10, which she original published on her blog. An angel, a hero and a cute dog named Charlie are some of the characters you’ll meet. Don’t be surprised if you recognize yourself, a crazy uncle, or a friend in one of them.
Martha is currently working on a second book featuring the three wacky siblings from A Reel Cool Summer as well as a work of middle-grade fiction.
She has been active in her church as well as her children’s schools, volunteering wherever her talents were in demand. She is a supporter of literacy initiatives and has been a volunteer Adult Literacy Tutor with Literacy Volunteers of Leon County (LVLC). She served on the Board of Directors of LVLC from 2008-2011 as a member, the Vice President and as Fundraising Committee Chair.
Martha and her family live in Tallahassee, Florida.
