I’ve been writing in some form or fashion since I was five years-old. My first YA novel, One Night, was released in September 2016. When I’m not working or writing I like to travel. I’m Filipino, Italian, and Scottish and I’m married to a Serbian which makes life interesting! Some of my favorite authors are John Green, David Baldacci, Lisa Scottoline, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Aisha Saeed, and Erin Entrada Kelly. Also, I love a good musical, the kind that makes you weep and fills your heart with joy and hope for humanity.
Deanna Cabinian is the author of One Night and One Love. She’s worked in radio, television, and magazine publishing, but writing is her first love.
