Miami author wins award

Pill cover 2 Miami author Anjanette Delgadoû has won the 2009 Latino Book Award for Best Romance in English for her novel The Heartbreak Pill (Atria, $14 in paper). The humorous tale - about an embittered research  scientist whose cheating dog of a husband inspires her to create medication to regulate emotions - is the first book from South Florida to win the award since actor Edward James Olmos created it 11 years ago, Delgado says.

A student in the Creative Writing Program at Florida International University, Delgado is a freelance television producer who also teaches at Miami Dade College's Florida Center for the Literary Arts.
