Behind the Author
Yosaris Rodriguez is a writer and poet whose writing journey started at the tender age of 10 years old while attempting to escape emotional pain. Growing up in the Bronx with a single mom and a sister with limiting disabilities, she hid in the fancies of storytelling, creating a safe haven, and releasing frustrations. While in elementary school she was introduced to the world of expressive reading and how to become the character in every new story she read. Writing became a personal escape.
