Ada Maria Soto is a born and raised Californian, Mexican-American/WASP, currently living as an expat in the South Pacific. Writing is her day job for the two days a week her toddler is in daycare. The other five days a week her toddler is her day job.

A psychologist once told her she has a fantasy prone personality, but since she’s trying to be a writer that’s not a bad thing. She has dysgraphia and phonological dyslexia which means there is liable to be some exciting spelling around here.

Coming out of fandom she enjoys any direct feedback from her readers.

She is a sports fan dedicated to the Oakland A’s, San Jose Sharks, Auckland Blues, USA Eagles, New Zealand All Blacks, New Zealand Black Caps, and the Chennai Super Kings.

I have maybe three scenes in my head but I'm not sure how to get from A to B to C with them. Unfortunately I'm not one of those writers who can just sit down and write. I need to have an outline with a beginning, middle, and end before I start or it just doesn't work. I'm thinking about, at some point in the next year, doing a second draft of Whistleblower with a little bonus tag on it.(less)

I'm currently working on a new contemporary romance. It's about an ME and a SWAT captain. It's pretty low on angst and has some BDSM elements but nothing to hardcore. (less)

Since some people have been asking here is an update on my mother’s attempt to hike the Pacific Crest Trail.


After a couple of weeks resting up from a twisted rib and taking a practice hike through the East Bay Hills she got a lift back up to the trail. Not at the exact point where she left off but a bit further north at a lower altitude. Her first day back on the trail it was hot. 95F/35C. The...

Ada Soto Hello everyone, I've got a newsletter now. It'll come out four times a year and have exclusive content. The first issue will have a Nested Hearts short story. It'll be a much easier way of keeping up with new releases or works in progress than trying to find me in all the social media noise. http://madmimi.com/signups/312275/join

Ada Soto Just submitted my next book. Let's see where it goes from here.
