Maria Hernandez is a screenwriter and author of Puerto Rican descent born and raised in East Harlem, NY. Growing up in Taft Projects on 115th Street, she would often let her imagination flow freely with tales and story lines that transported her imagination into a world of mystery, romance and action-adventures in faraway lands.
As an adult, Ms. Hernandez re-discovered her passion for writing and wanted to include her beloved "El Barrio" into her first novel, so she began writing on her spare time and soon after, her first novel was born. Trapped has created a great fan base for this author because her readers relate to the reality her characters bring. Every joy, tear and heartbreak can be felt on each page, and its plot twists are riveting. Trapped is currently available online and in stores. The Movie Trapped will be available in the Fall 2019
