How Vampires and Selena Quintanilla can stop violence against women with Violet Castro

Christina Castaneda published on

Every story needs a fascinating lead character, especially someone on a mission to end violence against women and who is a Selena fan, So when I see more stories that have strong Latina heroines, I keep turning the pages! 

Meet Violet Castro, author of the debut vampire novels, Maria the Wanted and The Legacy of the Keepers. On this episode, we talk about being independent Latina writers, strong female lead characters, writing erotica and most importantly, how writers can help end violence against women.
