Larissa writes paranormal, futuristic and contemporary romances. She has a bachelor’s degree in English from University of Central Florida. And she’s totally enjoying the writing journey.
A combination of her love of reading and her vivid imagination--plus an avid desire to rewrite the endings of the movies that made her beyond frustrated--led her into the world of writing. The first stories she wrote were for her children. She loves to play with words, to bring out the beauty in simple emotions, to go to that place which makes her think and contemplate and analyze the wonderful thing we call life.
On the home front she wears a dozen or so hats. Life is never dull with two grown children and four grandkids to keep her laughing. Her husband loves to sweep her away to remote out-of-doors locales. One goal is to visit all the major National Parks.
She’s worked with children for more than thirty years as a reading teacher, a coach for state and national champion baton twirlers and dance teams, and as a Special Olympic softball, basketball and cycling coach.
She’s lived in the same small Florida coast town for her entire life. In her spare time she enjoys traveling, tending the vegetable garden, baking and cooking, usually altering the recipe, and, of course, reading awesome books.
