Yesenia Rodriguez was born and raised in Riverside, California. As a self-proclaimed multipotentialite, she has dabbled in many capacities that have influenced her writing. In her debut as an author, she recalls her time as a cosmetologist and the beneficial impact that one’s image can have on their self-confidence. She believes what one does for others and how one treats them leaves an even greater influence. You will normally find her creating memories with her daughter.

She has always loved to draw and grew up in the woods of Northern Michigan along the shores of Lake Superior with her mother the illustrator and her grandmother the writer. She is a US ARMY vet and former 82nd Airborne paratrooper. Thanks to the military her family lived in Germany for 13 years. Where they grew to love the food, fests, castles and culture.

She spends her days doodling on her ipad with a cup of cold coffee by her side and a cat on her lap. Creating fun and quirky characters for picture books and middle grade.
