Short Bio - 100 Words
Ines Lozano writes children’s fiction, believing that our best stories come from the memories forged during childhood.
A proud latina, nothing drives her more than the chance to prove her family's sacrifices worthwhile. Her grandparents came to the States from El Salvador and Puerto Rico with the hopes of offering their children and future generations the opportunity to choose their dreams over choosing survival.
Ines was born and raised on Long Island, and she continues to live there now with her husband, daughter, and rising tik-tok-star dog.
When she's not writing, you can find Ines scrolling through Instagram and TikTok or shopping online for quirky earrings.
Long Bio - 250 Words
Ines Lozano is a children’s book writer whose stories center Latinx and mixed-race protagonists living their perfectly imperfect lives with their perfectly imperfect families. When not plotting her next novel, Ines works as a Regional Marketing Manager for a K–12 curriculum publisher, as a contributor for Parents Magazine, as a contributor for the From The Mixed Up Files...Of Middle Grade Authors, and as social media coordinator for the Latinx Kidlit Book Festival. Her love of words drove her to make a u-turn in 2019 to return to school and complete her bachelors with a degree in Business Management and Economics with a Concentration in Marketing.
Growing up, Ines was raised to value family, culture, and hard work. Weekends were often booked with family gatherings full of laughs, food, and music. It was at one of these many get-togethers where Ines realized her dream of writing and found the ever present encouragement to go after that dream. And it is the humble memories of those family gatherings that fill the pages of the stories she creates.
Ines was born and raised on Long Island, New York and is proud to come from a family of Salvadoran immigrants and the Puerto Rican diaspora.
She continues to live in New York with her husband, daughter, and smarter-than-he-pretends-to-be dog. They love nothing more than continuing to create beautiful memories with their extended family at barbecues, during the holidays, and in those spontaneous moments that have nothing to do with special occasions.
