LAURISA REYES is the author of The Celestine Chronicles, a fantasy adventure series for middle grade readers, and is an editor with Hamilton Springs Publishing. She has a B.A. in English/creative writing and is currently pursuing her graduate degree. She has two as yet unfulfilled dreams: to own her own bookstore and star in a Broadway musical. She lives in sunny Southern California with her hubby of 20 years, their 5 children, 6 fish, 4 birds, 2 desert tortoises, 2 bearded dragons, 1 dog, and a partridge in a pear tree.
Here is the description of her upcoming release, Book 2 in the Celestine Chronicles:
Laurisa: I actually keep quite busy. People are always shocked when I tell them I am a full-time mom of five kids aged 5 to 19 years. I’m often asked how I have time to write. I still don’t know that answer to that, but I do make time every day. In addition to writing, I am also a creative writing instructor at a local community education center, I’m attending grad school, and I’m an editor with Hamilton Springs Press. This is on top of all the blogging, school visits, book signings, and marketing I do.
