About The Author

Crystal Santoría



Crystal Santoría is the author of Up For Air and Blood Runs Deep. She graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She is very adamant on literacy and the will of the people to read. She believes that literacy is the key to overcoming ignorance.

She grew up in a town called Dothan. She began writing stage plays when she was twelve. She tried to enter the play into the D.A.R.E. contest but it never made it there. She has written countless of skits for classes. She just enjoys escaping her world and jumping into the realm of imagination to build another. She loves to motivate others to keep their imagination even if they grow older. No one should ever talk you out of your dreams. Dream awake and act on it. Writing has always been an escape against being bullied but also an escape into the imagination no one would ever go without being “age appropriate”.

Don’t be a chicken, write to me if you dare!
