Who am I?
Hola! I'm Amarilys Acosta, a passionate and creative Latina with an obsession for stories. I'm also a professional reader, writer, and editor of fiction.
My daily adventures include getting lost (on purpose) in the pages of books, building worlds from scratch and helping others do the same, and planning my next big vacation adventure. Learning is a big part of who I am, so following research threads to fascinating topics, developing new creative skills, and picking up new hobbies and classes every few months is a common thing.
My passion for writing and editing stems from my love of excellently crafted fiction stories that immediately transport me to new worlds while making a point to teach me things about real life. I like sneaky lessons. But what thrills me the most is helping others tell their own stories.
I believe that love has no boundaries, that representation matters, that strawberry smoothies are liquid happiness, and that spaceships are very cool. One of my main goals is to help LGBTQIA+ and POC voices become mainstream and bring diversity into the publishing world.
