Maria Elena Martinez lives in Coral Gables, Florida. She has a Bachelors in English Literature from Florida International University. Maria Elena has traveled around the United States, Canada, and Europe. Road trips are her favorite. Her talent is not limited to fiction. She writes poetry and non-fiction as well.
Taking care of her mother, who is disabled, is her priority. Maria Elena comes from a close and not so small family of two brothers, two sisters-in-law, and six nieces and nephews. They are also a family that loves and owns pets. Maria Elena has a Shichon dog (also known as a Teddy Bear) named Minnie. When there is free time, she enjoys going out to dinner, most things Disney, and a good movie. Oh, and she always has a smile for everyone.
