Hi, I’m Delise Torres, a Puerto Rican author of romantic women’s fiction residing in Germany. Currently, I’m in the process of querying my novel, THE SINGULARITY OF COOKIES, in hopes of landing a literary agent and be traditionally published.
My story ideas stem from daydreams triggered by the question, “What would it be like?”
Through my novels, I want to explore relationships in all their facets, especially those that are outside my realm of experience – those toxic, messy, confusing ones – and try to understand them and empathize with the people involved.
When not writing you can find me being a new mom, practicing yoga, meditating, singing, visiting new places, learning new things, reading, and watching movies and TV shows.
