As cliche as it may sound, I can’t remember when I first fell in love with editing. Even at an early age, I was stimulated by any opportunity to help my fellow classmates with paper reviews and writing ideas.

I naturally gravitated toward English and Lit Research and Criticism during my college years, and the winding trail lead me here to freelancing. I enjoy the freedom I have to support writers as they are, whether that be someone with a non-traditional niche, or someone who’s just beginning and needs an extra boost of help. Or someone going all in with self pub. I get to tailor my work to their needs, and there is little work to be found that allows such freedom of creativity.

I do keep a steady life of non-bookish things, which includes chasing around my two daughters, going to the movies with my husband, and baking all things bread (without a mixer, mind you, because I’m old school like that. Use them muscles!)

My taste in books varies to a degree that is a bit bizarre. My copy of John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars is so covered in margin notes and stickies that it’s barely readable at this point. But I also LOVE Philippa Gregory’s historical fiction, and my beautiful tome of Robert Burns poetry perpetually rests on my nightstand.

Coral Rivera

I started writing at a young age, during an insufferably hot summer in Puerto Rico. I wrote about magic and intelligent heroines, and I realized it was what I was meant for in life. I’ve worked many different jobs, but writing seemed to always lurk in the background as an aid to everyday strife.

I grew up in Orlando, Florida, surrounded by palm trees and fairy tales. I currently reside in Central Oklahoma with my husband, daughter, three cats, and more Disney memorabilia than I know what to do with.

I help students during the day, then create at night (when I’m not catching up on sleep/DVR). I’m a proud Puerto-Rican who very much belongs in Slytherin House. You can find my works and learn more about me at: http://www.coralrivera.com .
