She used her professional writing talents to lock down her first book deal with one of the largest book publishing companies in the world, Simon & Schuster. Her book, “Bedtime Stories” immediately made the Barnes & Noble Best Sellers list, and with the booming popularity it was published again a year later in paperback.
Her acting and modeling career took off internationally in television and print, including Maxim Magazine, and a Celebrity feature for Playboy. In 2008 Cortez was cast and appeared on the hit American reality television show Sunset Tan on the E! Network for two season’s, which skyrocketed her tanning salon fame and success.
