In addition to writing novels, she serves on the Board of We Need Diverse Books, and is the co-editor of the bestselling anthologyVampires Never Get Old, as well as the cohost of the writing podcast, Deadline City. She writes romance novels as Zoey Castile. Zoraida was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and calls New York City home. When she’s not working, she’s roaming the world in search of magical stories.

When we read Zoraida’s novel Labyrinth Lost—which features an incredible portal—we knew she would be an excellent choice for this topic. We’re so glad we had the opportunity to reconnect with her and talk all things portals in fiction!
