Tell us about yourself
Viola Estrella, an award-nominated author and 2010 RITA® finalist, loves a story with humor, flawed characters, paranormal elements, and romance. She tries to include these aspects in all that she writes and loves every minute of it. When she's not reading, writing, or watching her share of reality TV, she's spending quality time with her husband and sons in their Colorado home.
Hi, Viola. Naturally, I'm delighted to be your friend. I can't wait to read your next book. I loved Angel Vindicated and Bewitching You. You write a fun story with laugh-out-loud humor. -- Karen G./Karalee Long
