I was born in Galicia (northern Spain) and went to college in Madrid, where I finished my Ph.D. in Biology. For the next ten years, I worked as a researcher both in Madrid and at the University of Davis in California.
My writing career started when I came to live in Pennsylvania in the 1990s. Following my first sale, a magazine article on latex allergy, I published four books for Chelsea House (Facts on File): Heroin, Ritalin, Mad Cow Disease, and Lung Cancer.
My Young Adult novel Two Moon Princess, (the story of a discontented medieval princess, eager to live life on her own terms, who lands in modern day California) was published in 2007 by Tanglewood Press. It was recognized with the bronze award by the ForeWord Magazine in the Juvenile fiction category. It’s also available now as an e-book.
Ginger Knowlton from Curtis Brown Ltd represents my YA novels.
The Spanish version of my first adult novel, Bécquer eterno, was included in the Exhibit, Bécquer tan Cerca… A través del Arte (Sevilla, May-June 2012). Its English version, Immortal Love, will be published on September 15 by Crimson Romance.
