Estella Arias uses her 15 years of experience in the publishing industry to help authors accomplish their greatest aspirations. Her interest in publishing developed while she was studying French Literature at the Sorbonne in Paris. There, she met Bika Reed, a Yugoslavian author/composer/film director from London who became her mentor and close friend. Estella eventually moved to London where she began editing Bika’s manuscripts.

Shortly thereafter, she took on a position at Avon Books in New York City. After two years at Avon Books, Estella moved to Vermont to work for Inner Traditions/Bear & Co., where she held the titles of Director of Foreign Rights and Art Director.  Estella enjoys being a catalyst for authors whose work she believes in and being a part of their success. She was born in Cuba and was raised in Madrid, Spain.
