Master sculptor and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Robert Sanábria takes on illegal immigration, murder, love, and revenge in his second book, The Last Californio.

Robert Sanábria, a decorated retired Army lieutenant colonel, is a renowned sculptor and author living in Northern Virginia. Born in El Paso, Texas, he moved at age four with his mother and three siblings to Southern California. There, he spent the next 10 years growing up in a Methodist Church sponsored orphanage for Latino children.
A professional sculptor, Sanábria has created 25 major commissions for municipal projects, religious institutions, and commercial and private collectors. His artistic works are included in the permanent collections of 12 museums, synagogues, universities, and public spaces. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Maryland.
Sanábria is also the author of two LA-based books: Stewing in the Melting Pot: The Memoir of a Real American and the new thriller The Last Califórnio, which he discusses in detail in the revealing interview below.
About the Book
The idea for the book came from the research for Sanabria's memoir Stewing in the Melting Pot: the Memoir of a Real American. In The Last Califórnio, Mexican journalist Gar Montalvo tries to expose a corrupt government minister after he discovers the minister ordered the murders of Gar's family. Unfortunately, he becomes a target and flees across the Rio Grande and into the United States as an undocumented immigrant. Gar heads to Los Angeles, where he unveils his heritage of land and becomes involved in a high-stakes game of politics and an unexpected love affair with a beautiful paralegal named Eva Munoz.
The Last Califórnio by Robert Sanábria can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BetterWorldBooks, Diablo Rosso, Foyles Bookshop, and Powell’s Books.
