Cristina Quintero is a Colombian Canadian writer living well outside her preferred climate in Alberta, Canada with her husband, kids and two ridiculous dogs in an extremely red house.

She is a breast cancer graduate and obsessed with community building, cooking, and following her curiosity wherever it leads her. Which is not always wise but also never boring.

Cristina is represented by Amanda Orozco and Laura Cameron.

Congratulations Cristina!
