Mindy Ruiz lives in a sleepy Beach Town in Southern California. When she’s not writing, she spends her time chasing after three boys, making flirty eyes at her hunky husband, watching fantasy television shows, cheering for the Dallas Cowboys, and hanging out at the beach with her very large and loud Italian family.

Her career in publishing started in the 4th grade with a story about a magic, museum-hopping, chair. Now, Mindy writes young adult, new adult, and adult paranormal romance. Her books always include tormented heroes, snarky heroines, and lots of swoon-y moments that will put a smile on your face or make your heart race. Mindy is the lover of a good romance, the underdog and John Hughes' 80s teen movies.

When her toes aren’t in the s

“Inside Ms. Maddox's classroom, it was so quiet you could hear the breathing bounce off the walls.”
Mindy Ruiz, Enchanted Heart

“My brain was about two eggs past fried.”
Mindy Ruiz, Enchanted Heart

“I dropped my bag to the floor and the sound echoed throughout the house. No one shouted, "who's home?" or "Cassie? Is that you?". Instead the house gobbled up the sound as if it didn't know when the next taste of noise would come. Then again, the house hadn't experienced Olivia yet.”
Mindy Ruiz, Enchanted Heart

“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
