The Writescast Network is thrilled to confirm author Claribel Ortega will join r.r. campbell for a forthcoming episode of the r.r. campbell writescast.

From the author—

Claribel Ortega went from journalism student, editing her classmates often times hilarious ads and ramblings on the back page of SUNY Purchase’s Independent Newspaper, to a small town reporter, where she enjoyed going to board of ed meetings and texting the town mayors about the line at Starbucks.

Today she’s busy turning her obsession with eighties pop culture, magic and video games into books while traveling the world for her day job in marketing. She is the host of the WRITE OR DIE podcast, owner of small graphic design business GIFGRRL and the GIFGRRL SHOP which creates apparel for writers and creatives.

She lives in New York with her motorcycle-riding poet boyfriend & her suspiciously intelligent yorkie, Pancho Villa.

Claribel’s debut middle grade novel GHOST SQUAD is coming from Scholastic April 7th, 2020.

Claribel’s episode about middle grade fiction, paranormal fiction, and author Twitter will debut on April 3rd, 2020.
