The Novel


In the historic village of Riverside, tradition has gone unchallenged. That is, until eleven year old Elena Guzmán follows her passion for football and becomes the first female on the St. Mary’s Demons football team. Elena brings forth female empowerment through her ambition and bravery, but not without a price to pay.

Demons weaves a coming of age tale of belonging, of the rise and fall of hope, and of discovering individual and collective identity. Elena brings forth female empowerment through her ambition and bravery, but not without a price to pay.

DEMONS is a great read for all ages, but a must for grades 5-9. See for yourself why Elena’s message is the #1 New Release for Children’s Football Books on Amazon.
