Carolina Valdez

For Carolina Valdez, books and writing have been a major pleasure in her life. She composed her first stories at the age of eight, and since books were almost nonexistent in her parents’ home, she read everything in the elementary school library. Her mother took her to the nearest county branch, and the librarian selected appropriate adult books for her to read. A major treat was to scout used bookstores with her mother searching for tales by her favorite authors.

Multi-published and winning awards in nonfiction and fiction, Valdez decided to begin a novel. She had it in her head that if you were a real writer, you wrote a book. She had no idea what she was writing until a member of her critique group mentioned her “romance.” Enthralled by that genre, she has focused on it ever since. She is a member of RWA-PAN (the Published Author Network of Romance Writers of America) and RWA's Orange County, California, and Pasic chapters. Suspense and murder crop up in her romances because she's also a member of the Los Angeles chapter of Sisters in Crime.

She and her husband reside in southern California, only minutes away from mountains, desert or beach.
