Hi, I’m Val Tejeda! I’m an author, editor, and entertainment journalist. My bylines have appeared in publications such as Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, Latina, and more. I’m currently an editor of words at Upworthy. I also started a new-ish YouTube channel called “Heart Your Heritage.” When I’m not writing, I like to binge-watch Netflix, study genealogy, learn photography, and drink Peet’s coffee. I’m also obsessed with makeup, music, and all things pop culture. Oh, and cupcakes too! Hollywood Witch Hunter was my young adult debut novel, and the first book I’ve ever written.
