I only read my mom's story so far, "The Mexican Skirt" by Teresa Tumminello Brader and I loved it. Biased? Oh well.

Tell me about your grandparents, and I can point to something in From the Porch Swing that parallels your memories. Your grandmother getting a tattoo to match yours?

I have a few poems in this. It's a good anthology, but I just wish they had a better cover.
