Award-winning Mystery Author


About Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra

Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is an award-winning romantic suspense author with a unique point of view. Her suspense novels take place in locales across Europe and the United States, reflecting her international upbringing and extensive time as a Cuban exile and global traveler. In her duology, The Coin and The Book of Hours, her characters, Gabriela and Richard, walk the same paths as their creator, though her life was never in so much danger.

The author’s writing career began circa age thirteen with a very juvenile science fiction short story; but the writing bug hit, and she has been writing, in one capacity or another, ever since. She has worked as a professional dancer, singer, journalist, and literature teacher in both the university and middle school levels (and not necessarily in that order) and holds a Masters in English literature. She loves to hear from readers and, when not writing, roams around to discover new places to set her novels.

The author’s novels have recently been translated into French and will be translated into Spanish at a future date.

Ms. Alonso-Sierra is currently working on her next novel, a cozy mystery, the sequel to the Detective Larson, and other short stories. She lives in Florida with her husband and her dog, Amber.
