My name is Karina and I’m a bilingual speech-language pathologist (MS, CCC-SLP, BE) and children’s book author. Currently, I work with school-age children at a school in Brooklyn, NY. While targeting students’ storytelling skills through therapy, their boundless imaginations inspired this dream to write picture books of my own.

My debut book, The Coquíes Still Sing / Los Coquíes Aún Cantan, will be published August 23rd, 2022 by Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan. I’m represented by Charlotte Sheedy of Sheedy Lit. I’m also a member of SCBWI and Las Musas.
