About the Author:

Lourdes 'Odette' Ricasa was born in Manila, Philippines, a country that was under Spanish rule for three hundred fifty years. She is better known by her nickname, Odette. Born at the end of World War II in 1945, her father was a piano maker and merchant. They had a small warehouse that imported piano parts from Germany. Factory workers assembled the parts into completed pianos. In front of the warehouse were a piano store and an art gallery, where starving artists displayed their works. Odette's emotions were tied into these. Her mother is of mixed Chinese descent and was a housewife. Odette would insist to her dad that she would one day come to America and fulfill her dreams of travel. Both her poetry and paintings prove her as a keen observer of life in other countries and customs of the people. In 1971, she immigrated to New York and worked at Gimbel's Department store in Manhattan. After eight months, she moved to Los Angeles. She took night classes in computer programming at East Los Angeles College.Writing, painting, and playing the piano are her favorite hobbies. She took up painting classes at the Art Institute in Manila, Pasadena City College, and the Mission Renaissance Art School in South Pasadena in Los Angeles.
