Cristina Rivera was born in Oakland, California in 1987. She was shortly relocated to San Diego, California after her mother remarried. She fell in love with stories and by third grade spent a majority of free time amerced in books of all kinds. Her mother would read to her most nights, and she would loose herself in the lands of fairy tales and adventure. She began writing her own stories at the age of seven.
Cristina is currently studying English at San Diego State University and hopes to one day open her own preschool in which young children will have imagination building as part of their curriculum.
