How do you overcome difficult life experiences to publish a memoir? How do you step out of the shadow of a music legend to release your own voice? Having learned to protect yourself and be private, how do you connect with others and be genuine? Perhaps by standing in what is true and testifying, you can.
That's what Deborah Santana has done in "Space Between the Stars." Her journey traverses growing up as a biracial child in the Civil Rights era, and a year and a half in an abusive relationship with Sly Stone. It includes managing a vegetarian restaurant, stabilizing a family including three children, more than three decades with Carlos Santana (the most recent of them managing the Santana Band), and constant writing as a means of both personal expression and discovery.
Ms. Santana is COO of the Santana Band and vice president of the non-profit Milagro Foundation, which serves underpriviledged children around the world in the area of health, education and arts.
