About the Author

Reyna Simnegar

Reyna Simnegar was born and raised in Venezuela. Her family history dates back to the Spanish Inquisition when her family fled from Spain and ultimately arrived in Venezuela. Reyna moved to the United States in 1995 to pursue higher education in Interior Design. She is very happily married and lives with her wonderful husband and vivacious five boys in Brookline, MA. And by the way, she did end up getting her Bachelors degree in International Management and Economics from the University of Massachusetts with honors.
