[62] Isabel Ibañez, author of Woven in Moonlight

Isabel Ibanez

“As an own voices story, I feel a degree of responsibility to get this right, to tell this story exactly right. And I’ve had to tell myself that I’m not responsible for all stories, I’m not the answer to all questions. I am telling this story as it has impacted me, my family, and my experience.” – Isabel Ibañez

Isabel Ibañez was born in Boca raton, Florida and is the proud daughter of two Bolivian immigrants. A true word nerd, she received her degree in creative writing and has been a Pitch Wars mentor for three years. Isabel is an avid movie-goer and loves hosting friends and family around the dinner table. She currently lives in Winter Park, Florida with her husband, their adorable dog, and a series collection of books. Woven in Moonlight is her debut novel and is published by Page Street.
