May Torres is a freelance writer, born in New York City. She currently resides, in New York with her children. At a young age, she became fascinated by all things supernatural, as well as unexplained phenomena. She cites Stephen King as her favorite author, heavily influencing her love of the written word.
Although, her love of the supernatural, is the driving force in her writing, May aspires to branch out into other genres as well. Her rich experiences growing up as the only child of a single mother, helped to forge an imaginative spirit. Her writing is a mixture of life experiences and pure imagination.
When May set out to write her first novel, she wrote it with her teen daughter in mind. She intends to keep writing for the young adult audience, while also trying to captivate the adult reader. She hopes to be the kind of writer that keeps her readers on their toes, never knowing what to expect.
After completing her first novel, she was faced with the arduous task of getting it published. She struggled with the fear of, her work being turned into something she would not recognize, in order to conform to publishers’ strict guidelines. She made the decision to self publish and, with a friend and fellow writer, decided to start a company aimed at preserving the integrity of the author’s work.
