AUTHOR OF SPIRIT ANIMALS: FALL OF THE BEASTS, RETURN FIRE, MOVING TARGET, THE RED UMBRELLA, and A THUNDEROUS WHISPER
Bio: Chrsitina Diaz Gonzalez grew up in a Cuban household before moving to Miami. After graduating from law school and practicing law for several years, she realized, with the help of her two brilliant sons who were starting to read, that her true passion was not writing legal memoranda, but writing books for children, teens and adults. So with the encouragement of her very large extended family, she started pursuing the dream that the girl who sat up in that dogwood tree had always imagined.
