Reader & Writer


I was born in Galicia (northern Spain), a land of rolling hills and green valleys surrounded by the ocean, thought in medieval times to be ‘Finisterre,’ the place where the world came to an end.
Drawing from the mysterious beauty of this land and the tumultuous history of Spain, I’ve written three young adult novels that take place in a mythical world in which the medieval kingdoms of the past are still fighting each other, a world of warrior kings in which girls are not supposed to speak their minds. The first Two Moon Princess ( was published by Tanglewood Press in 2007.
The King in the Stone, my second novel, is available now as a Swoon Read.
