My novel, Ink, was published by Crossed Genres in October of 2012. (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...)

I was born in Bangkok, Thailand -- the daughter of a Mexican-Guatemalan artist and an American businessman. I grew up in Guatemala, and moved to the United States when I was 15. I studied filmmaking and creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, N.Y., which -- it has to be said -- suited me for none (and every one) of the occupations I've plied since.

I've done stints as everything from art gallery assistant to the director of a historic opera house, but eventually found my way, permanently, to newspapers. I've been staff writer, production coordinator, editor and managing editor at a string of local weekly newspapers

Sister Mine by Nalo Hopkinson

A fantastic book. The character and storyline are novel and engaging. But really, it is Hopkinson's writing I love — every sentence is beautifully crafted.

The Many Tortures of Anthony Cardno by Anthony R. Cardno

Setting aside the part where one of my stories is included in it, I think this is a vastly under-rated anthology, with really terrific stories by everyone from Christine Yant to Damien Angelica Walters.

“I don't really know them, but I know this: they're just like your kids were. Or are. Sweet, trusting, good in ways we adults hardly even remember. We have to look out for them. Not because of the tattoos, or in spite of them, but because they're kids and we're supposed to look out for kids.”
Sabrina Vourvoulias

“I get it, you know. I'm operating on privilege too. It may be a number of notches down from yours but it's every bit as unearned. I think the trick is to never forget it.”
Sabrina Vourvoulias

“So, with my knees pierced by needles and my shoulder sewn together by the slender thread of endorphins, I keep to my genuflection and end my story the only way that really fits. As a prayer that seals surrender. World without end. Amen.”
Sabrina Vourvoulias

“The love of our neighbor in all its fullness simply means being able to say, "What are you going through?”
Simone Weil

“We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine.”
Eduardo Galeano

“We move but our words stand
become responsible
for more than we intended

and this is verbal privilege”
Adrienne Rich
