About the Author: Cintia Alfonso Fior
Children’s fiction author Cintia Alfonso Fior first realized she wanted to be a writer after working with diverse underserved populations in South America, North America, and Africa. The perception of injustices and the great need to advocate for underserved populations, particularly children, inspired her to write her magical realism novel for young readers, Moraline. Fior has a MA in Peace and Justice Studies from the Kroc Institute of Peace Studies at the University of San Diego and serves as the current chair of the American Family Therapy Academy’s (AFTA) Family Policy and Human Rights committee. Fior’s goal is to use storytelling to facilitate conversations about racism, earth stewardship, and social justice. Originally from Argentina, she lives with her family in San Diego, California. Moraline is her debut novel.

A young girl receives a special message from a sacred Lakota leader about her power to change the world …
Twelve-year-old Moraline is about to run away from her problems … again. Ever since her family moved from New York to San Diego, Moraline pushes against a hot dry wind whenever trouble happens.
