San Francisco

Reader & Writer


Hi, I'm Francesca! I'm a recent grad from San Francisco working as a corporate travel manager. But mostly, I'm a writer and a dancer. I've been writing for years and am finally looking into publishing. I dance ballet and contemporary. My book, Star-Crossed, is a teen fiction/paranormal/romance book with PLENTY of ballet. It tackles topics such as human trafficking, undocumented immigration, and being forced to be independent financially and otherwise as a teenager. It features a large degree of diversity, starring a protagonist who is of Central American heritage. I believe these aspects as well as the lyrical prose, which often feels like reading a dance (or so I've heard ;) ), really set it apart. I hope you enjoy it!

Favorite Books

Absolute favorite books are Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo.PURE.LITERARY.GENIUS.I also enjoy books by David Mitchell, Terry Brooks, Haruki Murakami, and plenty more.

Favorite Quotes

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO CHOOSE?!Here's one:“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing”.- Helen Keller
