• I am originally from Guatemala (Central America) and now Texas is my home. I have three children and three dogs. I write under the pen name Keka Novales. I have moved several times. My journey started in South Carolina, then Kansas, afterwards we moved to Florida, and currently we live in Texas. Every State has provided a unique and beautiful experience. Moving has taught me to be flexible and always enjoy each moment.  

    I grew hearing legends and stories from my grandparents. Guatemala is a small country, but very rich in culture. Now I want to share those stories and traditions with the next generation.


    When I am not writing, I am having adventures with my family. 


  • My goal is to write books for children that inspire the next generation to love and embrace cultural differences, heritage, and family through kindness and open communication.
