I am a debut Women's Fiction author. My first novel, WRAPPED IN THE STARS, will be released in 2018. It was short-listed for the Del Sol First Novel Prize in 2017.
I live in San Antonio with my husband, two children, and two rescue dogs.
I write books about women who have a chance to change their lives. Women who are strong but have difficult choices to make and are challenged on how to persevere through these choices. My stories take place in the United States, in Europe, in cities, in small towns, anywhere my characters take me.
Besides writing, I am passionate about travel, nature, and reading every book I can find.
I am also a clinical psychologist blogging on issues of mental health for teens and adults. I enjoy working with the media due to my expertise in managing anxiety, stress, and parenting issues. I provide consultation to authors on writing about mental health. My nonfiction writing can be found at https://www.drelenamikalsen.com
