I live in Alaska with my husband, son, and puppy. I spend my days hanging out with my boy, and at night, I’m either writing or reading.
I’ve loved reading since forever, so naturally I became a fiction writer. I graduated from Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2017 and signed with my literary agent, Danielle Chiotti of Upstart Crow Literary, a couple months later.
My books are for young adult and middle grade readers and they almost always feature a Cuban character, like me, and live somewhere near mountains, also like me.
I’m also a freelance writer. As a contributing writer for Book Riot, I feel super lucky because I get to write about books! And reading! And authors! I also write for Mom.me, Re:Fiction, Your Dog Advisor, Jumper Media, and PickFu.
I’ve also got a blog on here, which I’ll be updating with exciting new content very soon!
