aka Jennifer Cervantes

J. C. Cervantes grew up in San Diego and was fascinated by stories about Maya gods and magic as a child. Those tales inspired her to write a best-selling middle grade fantasy trilogy about children of Maya and Aztec gods for Rick Riordan Presents: The Storm RunnerThe Fire Keeper, and The Shadow Crosser, two of which featured Ren as a main character. Jen's short story "The Cave of Doom" in the best-selling The Cursed Carnival and Other Calamities anthology also ties into this book. For more work by J. C. Cervantes, look for her YA rom com, Flirting with Fate, and her entry in the YA fiction series The Mirror: Fractured Path.
