Carlotta Arradondo studied courses in writing and playwriting at Metropolitan State University and the Loft Literary Center in Minnesota. Carlotta explained that she found her passion for writing at age nine, and it was during that time she began to hone in on her skills to ensure her writing looked it's best for school assignments and to pen short letters to her mother. Her desire for writing increased. Carlotta released her debut novel, Yearning, in 2007, and went on to revise and release it in 2013.
In addition, Carlotta co-wrote a poetry book in 2009, titled Writer’s Block Poetry and Food for Thought, with her youngest son Chance Arradondo and nephew Kalin Arradondo. She believed their huge contribution to Writer’s Block Poetry and Food for Thought made it an inspiration to young and older readers alike. Carlotta loves being a part of the African American literary arts community, and is very grateful for everyday she's given the opportunity to showcase her work. She is currently working on her second novel, A Combination of One.
