When she’s living among real people, Yvette M. Calleiro is a middle school Reading and Language Arts teacher. She’s been sharing her love of literature with her students for over twenty years. Besides writing about the various characters that whisper (and sometimes scream) in her head, she enjoys traveling, watching movies, spending quality time with family and friends, and enjoying the beauty of the ocean.

Yvette lives in Miami, Florida, with her beautiful son who allows her to enjoy children’s literature all over again. She also shares her space with an assortment of crazy saltwater animals in her 300-gallon tank.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
There are so many enjoyments when it comes to writing for me, but I'd have to say that the greatest of them all is that it provides me with an inner peace to see my ideas take shape on paper. Yes, I still write by hand before taking the story to a computer. I love seeing the story unfold in my journal, knowing that I created those characters, that story line, and those moments.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything...lol! As a new author, fandom was not something I focused on. I wrote because I enjoyed it (and because my characters refused to shut up until their story was written). ;-) It wasn't until I started to share my writing with my family and friends that I realized how much I loved their appreciation of my work. My first true fan, my friend Rob, has been such a motivator for me that I can honestly say that fans help an author stay motivated during the toughest moments. Seeing his excitement about my characters and his angst over what they experience has brought me such great joy (hehe...yes, I take enjoyment in knowing my readers will suffer along with my characters! Ar'ch, Sofia, Rafe, and Angel shouldn't be the only ones suffering. lol!). ;-) Having him pester me about showing him new chapters and showing him new plots thrills me and pushes me forward! Fans have SO much power, and I look forward to making them very, very happy with my novels.
