Author Jennifer “Fire” Arroyo was born in New Rochelle, NY and raised in Bridgeport, CT. At a young age, Fire began writing poetry & stories that her mother submitted to writing contests her local library held & even won a writing contest in elementary school. After graduating high school, Fire wasn’t sure what she wanted to do & although attending a community college, she dropped out & took to hustling. Urged by her sister to continue to write, she entered several contests & won first place to a Vickie stringer writing contest & was given an honorable mention in a K’wan writing contest. That was all it took to encourage Fire to continue writing. Now at the age of 26 with 3 kids & attending business school, Fire & Ice use life experience as well as imagination to continue a lifelong dream of writing & create stories that readers can relate to & learn from! The name stems from FIRE plots and ICE cold characters coming together to bring heat the urban writing game!
