Amparo Ortiz is the author of Blazewrath Games. She was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but she currently lives on the country's northeastern coast. Her short story comic, What Remains in The Dark, appears in the Eisner Award-winning anthology Puerto Rico Strong (Lion Forge, 2018), and Saving Chupie, her middle grade graphic novel, is forthcoming from HarperCollins. When she's not teaching ESL to her college students, she's teaching herself Korean, devouring as much pizza and as many Twizzlers as she can, and writing about Latinx characters in worlds both contemporary and fantastical.
