About mePalessa is an independent author who started reading her first romance novel, at the age of 11. Then she got introduced to V.C. Andrews, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Anne Rice and many more notable contemporary authors as well as some of the classics, A Tale of Two Cities, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Great Gatsby and others. It was during her teenage years that she dabbled in writing. First, it was in her diaries, then she started creating characters, stories about romance, the supernatural and much more.
It would take almost 20 years, a radical move from the city she grew up in, Miami, FL back to her Caribbean birthplace, and a chance Facebook meeting with Sable Hunter to start the juices flowing again.

After some fits and starts, the Baxter Family Saga was born. Unchained Hearts is Palessa's first published fiction book. It was published back in 2013 by Beau Coup Publishing, which has now closed its doors. She currently lives in the mountains of Jamaica with her crazy, cracker-munching-mutt Ivy, cute but thieving cat Kushi, chickens, goats and a farm, primarily managed by agribusiness partner, also known as Dad.
