About the Author

Cecilia Domeyko nació en Chile y se recibió de periodista en su país natal. Ha desarrollado una larga y fructífera trayectoria como reportera, guionista, productora y realizadora audiovisual. Realizó corresponsalía para la revista Hoy, en Washington. Fue reportera para el noticiero nacional de la cadena Univisión y el Canal 13, de Chile. En los años noventa escribió y produjo una importante serie de documentales sobre los derechos humanos y de la mujer. Sus documental Cuba Mía se televisó por la cadena PBS en Estados Unidos y ABC Australia y Nombre Secreto: Mariposas ha tenido una gran acogida en universidades de los Estados Unidos. Ambos documentales recibieron importantes reconocimientos internacionales. Escribió y dirigió también 55 mini-programas de ficción, sobre temas relacionados con la población hispana de los Estados Unidos que recibieron más de 30 premios en festivales de cine, transmitiéndose por una década en Univisión y CNN-en-español, tanto en Estados Unidos, como Latinoamérica.De estos diez años de investigación, con entrevistas a la comunidad latina de USA sobre sus experiencias en el cruce de la frontera y los desafíos que enfrentaron al llegar a EEUU, nació Sacrificio en la frontera, una obra de ficción hermosa y estremecedora, donde un niño es robado por su propio padre para usarlo en el macabro negocio del tráfico de órganos.Con Sacrificio en la frontera, su primera y apasionante novela, Cecilia Domeyko entra a las filas de la literatura, develándonos una gracia muy especial para narrar y mantener conectado al lector desde la primera frase hasta el punto final. La carga de suspenso, acción e intriga que lleva la novela, se une a ese caudal de valentía en profesionales y creadores, que hacen uso de sus talentos y buen oficio para depositar un grano de arena en la lucha contra el abuso y el crimen. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Cecilia Domeyko was born in Chile and spent her childhood traveling to various parts of the world with her diplomat parents. She began her career as a foreign correspondent in Washington, DC writing for Latin American magazines and newspapers. She turned to filmmaking, producing documentaries about human rights, and the rights of women. Her work has aired in the US on PBS and Univision, and internationally on ABC Australia and Canal Plus. Her series of fiction programs for television aired on CNN-español in 18 Latin American countries and nationally in the US on Univision and Telemundo.

Her novel Sacrificio en la Frontera tells the story of Yoali, a woman whose toddler is stolen when she crosses the border into the U.S. While fiction, the story is based on Cecilia's research into the plight of migrant families, and talks about the issue of child trafficking on the border.

A love and adventure story rolled into one, the characters each tell their own version of events, moving the storyline forward to the heartrending finale.

The novel had its first launch in Miami, Florida at Altamira Books in October of 2017. A second launch took place at the Embassy of Chile in Washington, DC on November 14, 2019.

Cecilia Domeyko lives in Washington, DC, and her English version of the book, Sacrifice on the Border will be out in 2020.
