About this author


I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay. My family relocated to the U.S. in the early 70s during the military upheaval there. I earned a B.A. in International Relations at the University of California, Santa Barbara, then an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. I’ve worked as a newspaper reporter and a magazine editor. I’m now the Director of Spanish-Language Media at GLAAD.
My short stories have been anthologized and published in journals and magazines such as The Sun and The Rake. I’ve also written several plays. Broken Like This is my first novel.
I live in Los Angeles with my partner Valda and enjoy seeing my family and friends, reading, and getting to the beach as much as possible for some boogie boarding and smash ball.

I thought Perla was a lovely book, with poetic imagery and an original portrait of the pain that family members can cause one another with secrets and lies.
