About Viola

Viola Estrella loves a story with humor, flawed characters, paranormal elements, and romance. She tries to include these aspects in all that she writes and loves every minute of it. When she’s not reading, writing, or designing book cover art , she’s spending quality time with her husband and sons in their Colorado home.

Special awards:

Viola is a 2010 RWA® RITA® finalist. Her Urban Fantasy, ANGEL VINDICATED, was nominated for Best First Book. In 2015, her paranormal romance novel, HAUNTING YOU, won the Specialized Category in the NTRWA Carolyn Readers Choice Awards and was a CRW Award of Excellence finalist. In 2010 she was honored by her local RWA chapter, Colorado Romance Writers, with the Writer of the Year award. 

So…how do you pronounce her name? Good question!

Viola — Not like the instrument, more like the flower.
Estrella — With an ay-ya not an el-la. And she dares you to roll the r.
