Dare to Read

About the Author

Carmen @ Celtiberia

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.

  1. May I use your post on The Eagle of the Ninth on my blog, which I commented on briefly as you know, suitably linked and credited of course?

  3. Great material, Carmen. You’re on the right track and you definitely have talent. Keep up the good work. I run a series of magazines (Daily Love, Yesteryear Fiction and Weirdyear) and I’d love to see a submission from you sometime, if you’re up for it.

    Hang loose,

  4. Estimada Sra Ferreiro-Esteban,

    I thought you would be very interested in a wonderful series of Spanish-language historical novels set in Galicia during the Bourbon era, by my friend Juan Granados: http://sartinefiles.wordpress.com/

    Muy atentamente,

    Larrie D. Ferreiro
    (P.S. As you can see, we share the same Gallego last name.)

    • Dear Larrie,

      Please tell your friend to contact me. As you know I’m writing a novel about Becquer and would love to discuss writing historical novels with him.


      Happy Holidays!
