IS A Fiction Writer

I just finished my MFA in fiction at the University of Wyoming where I worked with Joy Williams.


I grew up in Georgia and mix together South American and Southern storytelling traditions to create bizarre and surreal environments, as well as featuring Latinx in situations they normally don't find themselves in contemporary fiction.  


I've been to Bread Loaf twice, the first time I worked with Lauren Groff, and then with Pichaya Sudbanthad at the Bread Loaf Environmental Writing conference. 

I am working on a novel and a collection of short stories.
