Author of 10 books, Yesenia Vargas credits her start as a writer to her third-grade teacher who encouraged her to become an avid reader. Now, as a full-time author, she is enjoying her “dream come true,” writing about teenagers and their first experiences with love. 

Her short story, “More Than a List,” follows Riley who embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. With only 24 hours to spare before graduation, she sets out to finish a wish list left by her late mother. Along the way, she will take risks and find fun and experience love. 

Yesenia understands high school can be a difficult portion of anyone’s life and aims to help and make fans smile with her stories. She believes if she can accomplish this, then she has fulfilled her duty as a YA author. 

Currently, Yesenia plans to continue writing YA fiction. She is finishing her newest series, #BestFriendsForever, and will release the last book of the series Fall 2018. In addition to YA romance, she is also co-authoring an urban fantasy/paranormal romance series.
