Tucson Festival of Books

Lydia San Andres (She/ Her)

Friend of the Festival

Lydia San Andres (She/Her) lives and writes in the tropics, where she can be found reading, sipping coffee, and making excuses to stay out of the sun. As much as she enjoys air conditioning, she can sometimes be lured outside with the promise of cookies and picnics. She writes historical romances set in the Caribbean with Latinx characters who are much fonder of the tropical heat than she is.
