Isabel Ibanez is a published American author.

Ibanez was born in Florida in the city of Boca Raton, the daughter of parents that immigrated to the United States from Bolivia. She grew up there as well as Orlando. She has been living as an adult in the state of Florida in Winter Park along with her husband. While in college, she graduated with a degree in the field of creative writing. She has also spent some time as a mentor with Pitch Wars.

She has a lot of hobbies and enjoys going to the movies, something she does often. She also describes herself as being quite the word nerd, even though she has a secret skill for taking words in the English language and pronouncing them incorrectly, something that she says is just the start of some of her ‘endearing quirks’.

She enjoys reading and has a huge collection of her own books. Sometimes she will devour an entire book throughout the course of the day, although she notes that she probably should go outside more often. She also enjoys doodling and cooking, something that comes in handy when she throws dinner parties. Ibanez enjoys having friends and family over to hang out by the dinner table and share some good food and conversation together.

The author has a soft sport when it comes to literature in the young adult genre, which includes the massively popular series Harry Potter. On top of that, she would say that she has aspects of herself that contribute to her being a romantic sentimentalist. That means that she enjoys a lot of classic authors, including Hardy, James, Austen, and Wharton.

Ibanez also really enjoys all aspects of being creative and imagination. She also likes to travel as well as learn different world history trivia bits. She prefers to get to the heart of the matter when it comes to most things. She admits that when it comes to shopping, she has a fondness for anything that came from Anthropologie.

She is not just a writer but also is a graphic designer. Her specialty would be greeting cards. She has found moderate success in this line and her work has been opted to be carried in a variety of national stores. These include Paper Source, Crate and Barrel, her favorite store Anthropologie, and well over three hundred smaller shops located around the United States. Those that want to check out her work can look at 9th Letter Press. This is a company that the author founded herself and successfully sold in 2017.

Woven In Moonlight is the first fictional novel from this author. It was published in 2020 for readers everywhere to enjoy. The book has gotten great reviews from a variety of sources. Queen’s Rising author Rebecca Ross called the debut spellbinding and vivid. Adrienne Young, who wrote Sky in the Deep and is a best selling writer, called the young adult book ‘wholly unique’. Margaret Rogerson called the book a feast that was lush and vibrant.

When it comes to the character of Ximena, she is anything but the real deal. She’s a decoy, a fake Condesa standing in and pretending to be the last Illustrian royal that remains. It’s a necessary situation. Atoc the usurper caused her people to lose just about everything that they have when he utilized a relic from ancient times for his own power. He summoned the ghosts and La Ciudad was emptied of the Illustrians as a result.

Ximena was outraged by the act and it’s been on her mind constantly. The only thing that she wants in this life is revenge, and her thirst for it is so great that nothing can stand in her way. She also has a unique enchanted ability that lets her create thread, spinning it from the moonlight itself.

She may just have a chance to seek that revenge once Atoc decides that he wants to marry the Condesa. Demanding her hand, now Ximena must stand in for the real woman. She’s happy to do so, especially since her people’s spies have brought back information that Atoc does not have the relic around him anymore. Locating the relic herself could mean that she is able to at last restore the people to the place that they belong.

Finding the relic is one of the best chances to restore order, so Ximena decides to devote her energy to searching for it. She is able to use her unique ability to spin thread and weave to put secret messages to the resistance in various tapestries. Things are about to get more complex for this protagonist, however, when various people challenge her. A nice princess, a vigilante that wears a mask, and a healer are all about to make this more difficult for her.

Deep down she knows that she could get rid of Atoc in a peaceful way, although it would take some searching to find it. Maybe beginning another conflict would not be the best way to do it, but her ultimate goal of restoring the status quo is also influenced by her desire to seek revenge. If she abandons her Condesa and revenge, she could potentially achieve the overthrow. But is it worth it? Who else will suffer? Ximena’s contemplating her options. To find out what she chooses, pick up Isabel Ibanez’s Woven In Moonlight and see what happens!

Written In Starlight is the second novel from this author. This novel is set in the same fictional world and kingdom that Moonlight occupied.

This story follows the main character of Catalina Quiroga. She’s taking on dangers in the middle of the jungle. She should also be Inkasisa’s queen, rightfully. When her old general’s son rescues her, she’s come up with a plan to track down a city of gold long lost and make an alliance that is going to get her sitting in the throne once more. What will happen? Read this book to find out!
