Carlotta Arradondo is a novelist, poet and short story teller, who was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She received her Human Services certificate from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. 

Throughout her studies she felt conflicted. She had a desire to write, but she loved helping people in need. It was her dream and goal to try and make the world a better place. Later she went on to enroll in courses in creative writing and play writing. She would attend plays periodically just to visualize what her own stories might look like on stage. Carlotta loved to write. She enjoyed it so much she couldn’t put the pen and paper down. Writing was a desire, and completing a novel a dream come true.

Carlotta found her passion for writing at age nine. It was during that time she began to refine her skills for class assignments, and she’d sit in the quite of her bedroom to pen short letters to her mother. As she grew older her desire to write increased. She released her debut novel, Yearning, in 2007. Then she went on to revise and re-release Yearning, in 2013 to ensure it looked its best.

In 2009, Carlotta Arradondo co-authored Writer’s Block Poetry and Food For Thought, with her son Chance Arradondo and nephew K. Caprice Arradondo. She believed their huge contribution to Writer’s Block, made it an inspiration for young and older readers alike.

In Writer’s Block, Carlotta discusses a variety of topics, ranging from forgiveness to the realization of being in an abusive relationship to love. Her new book, A COMBINATION OF ONE is her second novel, and on sale now.

Be sure to look out for her new title SAFER AMONG STRANGERS: A COLLECTION OF THREE SHORT STORIES coming soon.
