Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban was born in Galicia (Northern Spain), a land of rolling hills and green valleys surrounded by the ocean, thought in medieval times to be ‘Finisterre,’ the place where the world came to an end.
She finished her Ph.D. in Biology in Madrid and for the next ten years, worked as a researcher both in Madrid and at the University of Davis in California.
Her Young Adult novel Two Moon Princess, (the story of a discontented medieval princess, eager to live life on her own terms, who briefly visits modern day California before returning to her world) was published in October 2007 by Tanglewood Press. It was recognized with the bronze award in the Juvenile fiction category by the ForeWord Magazine. Its sequel, The King in the Stone, is scheduled to be published in 2010.
She has also published four non-fiction books for Chelsea House (Heroin, Ritalin, Mad Cow Disease, and Lung Cancer).
Currently she lives in Pennsylvania where she freelances as a writer and translator (English<>Spanish) while working on her third novel.
