About Kathleen Contreras

Kathleen Contreras lives in Ventura, California, a beautiful beach town.  I’m a bilingual professor at California State University, Channel Islands, where I work with future teachers.  I also taught grades 4, 5, &6 in bilingual classrooms.

I love my family, amigos, the Virgen de Guadalupe, yoga, and swimming.  I love traveling to new places, meeting new faces, and enjoying new experiences.  Chicken tacos, frijoles, fresh salads, and homemade cookies are my favorite foods.

I write stories that are both fiction and non-fiction; like my books.  Part of the story is based on my life, and some parts I used my imagination!
