Kaela Rivera

KAELA RIVERA writes about the folktales of her Mexican-American and British parents from the mountains of the Wild West. When she’s not crafting stories, she’s working as a senior editor for a marketing company—or secretly doodling her characters in the margins of her notebook. Her debut novel Cece Rios and the Desert of Souls won the 2022 Charlotte Huck Award for Outstanding Fiction for Children, and its sequels come out Fall 2022 and Fall 2023.
