I'm a (gasp) 30-something writer currently based in Shreveport, LA. I've been a professional journalist for 8 years and have had articles published in several newspapers including USA Today. I am very proud to say that I am a Nuestra Discovery, which essentially means I've performed and have had work performed at a Nuestra Palabra showcase. That is such a blessing!

I've performed in the poetry scene in Houston, Austin, Wichita, and Shreveport. Although my roots are in poetry, right now I'm working primarily in fiction.

My latest project, a short story called Of Love, Death, and Marriage:
The Fabled and Rumored Reputation Don Armando Mejia, is part of Soul's Road: A Fiction Collection due out in late August.

Bonnie Tharp I'd love it if you'd give "Feisty Family Values" a read. Based on your book list I think you'd enjoy it. Take care,
