Hello! My name is Deanna Balestra and I love writing for you all here at Wattpad. I'm on a little break at the moment because I am working on publishing and also started my own company. Please read and enjoy in the meantime, I promise I will be back! 

Find me on Bubblews:

I enjoy reading drama, literature, paranormal, horror, urban fantasy, young adult and many other types of writing. I read a lot, and I mean a lot! 

I live in the Midwest, USA. I have a fantastic husband, two beautiful sons and a few great dogs!

Please take the time to vote and comment on anything you like. 

NEW: My short story "Hunting Season" has been posted as part of a collection read it here:

I've been interviewed - if you want to read about my views on horror writing read on:
