And Andrews has a lot in common with Peter Parker, the alter-ego of Spider-Man. Lefebvre, who writes under the name Mark Leslie, grew up in a small town with a population of approximately 2,000 people.

Ileana Muñoz-Renfroe launches book 2 in the Rosa the Cuban Psychic series!

  Welcome back to one of my favorite authors, Ileana Munoz-Renfroe!  For the longest time, Ileana Muñoz-Renfroe wanted to be an author. Almost twenty years later, and after raising two children and owning numerous businesses, she decided to take the plunge. About a year ago, as she sat in a Café in Paris, the idea of Rosa popped into her head, and the stories and characters became real. Since two of her passions are the paranormal and high-end fashion, she found a way to combine them and created Rosa the Cuban Psychic Mysteries. This series brings together her Cuban and American culture to make for a fun cozy mystery story. She is hard at work on writing a spin-off to Rosa the Cuban Psychic Mysteries and a brand-new series involving the character Candeedo Brewdinkle. When she is not writing, she enjoys traveling, reading, entertaining, and listening to music.
