About me

All about LAS.

Welcome!

I was born in Queens, New York. Raised in: Oceanside, New York, Tulsa, Oklahoma and Taubate, Sao Paulo, Brazil. I’m a complete and utter gypsy by nature. Since I was 14, I haven’t stayed in a home for more than a year. I’m currently living in Tulsa, Oklahoma with my wonderful husband, Aaron.

I’ve been an artist all my life, drawing and painting my way through elementary school and ending up in at the Dallas Art Institute after high school. However, I realized at the end of my second year that didn’t want to spend my life doing art for others and that I really needed to do it for myself.

Notice I didn’t say anything about writing? That’s because I never did before. I’m extraordinarily dyslectic and impatient so I never gave reading a chance past what was required for school. My sophomore year of high school changed everything. I had the most amazing English teacher ever,  P.C. Cast. She opened my eyes and helped me find the amazing world of young adult and fantasy books.

8 years later…

When I was 22 years old I started writing a little here and there and soon realized that there was an actual story brewing. When I was 23 I met the lovely Jennette Maldonado , who inspires me every single day to write, write and write some more. So here I am, writing.  It’s been almost 4 years since Jennette became my muse.

Not only do I have a wonderful muse, but that I also have the most wonderful editor, my little big sister (older by fifteen months but shorter by inches…) Mayra is amazing. She helps me sound much more profound than I am. You will be grateful for all the lines she fully crosses out so that my über rambling sessions ceases. I have to admit if anyone else would be editing my words, I would be far to shy to share them. They would live and die on my iMac which would be a serious injustice to my story.

I am so thankful for the people in my life that motivate and push me each day. Thanks Jennette, Mayra and Aaron for everything you do!

I’m still working on my first draft of what I know for sure will have to be a series. I’m not sure on single book titles yet but the series is going to be called “Life Trial Chronicles.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my site.
