Today’s guest is author Adriana Herrera. Adriana is the author behind the Dreamer series, which is one of my favorite 2019 romance series that features Afro-Latinx queer characters with beautiful happily ever afters. Her latest book American Love Story comes out next week October 7, 2019. In this episode, we chat about her writing process, we dive into her series  and finally a round of book recommendations. 

In this episode, we chat:

  • How the 2016 elections inspired her to write her latest series?
