About Us

Sara Alvarado is a local author in Madison, WI. She is also a speaker, teacher, real estate business owner, and a fierce advocate for social justice. This is a 282 page book published by Little Creek Press in March of 2023.

Sara's memoir, Dreaming In Spanish: An Unexpected Love Story in Puerto Vallarta takes readers on an intimate journey that reminds us that sometimes when life throws us challenges, the best way through is to trust and surrender. At age twenty-four, Sara Alvarado bought a one-way ticket from the Midwest to Mexico, determined to heal from years of hard partying and sexual trauma. In this raw and inspiring memoir, Sara struggles with being newly sober, unexpectedly in love, and then suddenly, terrifyingly pregnant. Guided from afar by her wise and loving mother and her emerging spiritual connection, Sara faces the complexity of a multicultural marriage and motherhood in a foreign country. In vivid, storytelling prose, Sara shares the messy dance between cultures, classes, languages, traditions, white privilege, and a desire to belong.
