I was born in Chile and moved to America when I was only three years old. I was raised in Sleepy Hollow NY. No I’ve never run ito the Headless Horseman. Growing up all I’ve known is I wanted to write. I got my BA in English and my Masters in Literacy. I became a preschool teacher, and though it’s been fun, it has never been my dream to teach. I have always wanted to write.
When I moved to the Catskills, I became inspired in a different way. Music became very important in my life; I think it’s because I only live 10 miles from the grounds of the 1969 Woodstock festival. Yes sometimes I like to think I’m a hippie from the 1960′s. I really think I was born in the wrong decade. My surroundings helped and inspired Hold on Tight, my debut YA novel.
Watching my dream become a reality has been a lot of hard work, but I have enjoyed every minute of it. Right now I’m working on my second book Letting Go, which is the sequel to Hold on Tight. I hope to write for the rest of life, only taking breaks to rock out at concerts and dance around my house.
