S2 E19: Isabel Ibañez & What Did Claribel Want to Say?

Claribel and Kat discuss current events and how things currently happening in publishing might be making some authors feel uncertainty. Then they interview Isabel Ibañez about her path to publication and how she came up with the very personal topic of her debut novel, Woven in Moonlight, inspired by recent Bolivian events and her family’s experience.

Bio: Isabel Ibañez was born in Boca Raton, Florida and is the proud daughter of two Bolivian immigrants. A true word nerd, she received her degree in creative writing and has been a Pitch Wars mentor for three years. Isabel is an avid movie goer and loves hosting family and friends around the dinner table. She currently lives in Winter Park, Florida with her husband, their adorable dog, and a serious collection of books.
